Atlanta, GA: On March 19th, a dozen teams and scores of volunteers came together for a dodgeball tournament put together by Helping Organizations & People Everywhere Inc. (HOPE Inc). The event was co-sponsored by UNICEF with the goal to raise awareness and funds to provide clean water to those who cannot easily access it.
HOPE Dodgeball with UNICEF was a unique event where people of all races, religions, and communities could come together and participate in a competitive event suitable for everyone. As the teams battled on the court, all who attended learned about the sustainable efforts of UNICEF.
With the money raised, HOPE helped UNICEF provide 1 year of clean water for 100 people or roughly 4 hand pumps serving approximately 1000+ people.
Attendees also helped make and pack over 500 sandwiches to be donated to Crossroads Ministry, a local homeless refugee.
