In the past 2 weeks The Playing It Forward Youth Sports Foundation has taken the opportunity to extend our breadth of offerings.  Providing youth sports opportunities for local children is and always be our mission, but as we approached the end of 2011 our board unanimously agreed to intensify our efforts to make a difference in our community.  

First, we solidified our commitment to the Town of Firestone and the Tri-Town areas by participating in the Adopt-A-Place program.  We will be maintaining the section of Colorado Blvd between Sable Avenue and Pine Cone Avenue.   Our first clean-up effort will be announced shortly.  Additionally, we welcome YOUR help.  This is a great way to be involved and give back to the community by volunteering just a couple hours of your time.   Please contact us if you'd like to participate.  

Our final (and most rewarding) year end initiative was brought to us by a couple of our  thoughtful board members.  As a result, we're pleased to announce that Playing It Forward was able to fulfill the Christmas wishes of 3 local children who otherwise may not have been able to experience the joy of the Holidays.  In addition, King Soopers provided gift cards for us to present to the families.  

Lastly, we are very passionate about ALL of the programs that we are involved in and look forward to increasing the number of opportunities available to our future stars!  Without your support, this would not be possible.  For that, we THANK YOU and are proud to have you as part of our family.  We hope that your and your families have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  
 
Playing It Forward is proud to announce that we have joined the local community in Adopt-A-Place.  Playing It Forward has adopted a section of Colorado Blvd between Sable and Pine Cone.

As you could imagine, roadside litter costs our communities, cities and state millions of dollars annually to control.  It is often difficult to keep up with the trash that thoughtless people have dumped on our streets.  This is why Playing It Forward is getting involved.  This is yet another way for us to help provide for our community.  We are committed to providing litter cleanup at a minimum of four times per year along this section.  If you would like to participate in this initiative please look for our upcoming monthly new letters where we will publish our clean up schedule.
