Men's basketball collecting "Health Kits" for Dominican Trip

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

The Lipscomb men’s basketball team is collecting “Health Kits” for their trip to the Dominican Republic Aug. 10-16. 

In addition to playing exhibition basketball games, the teams will visit on orphanage in La Ramana and make several stops at villages.  The health kits will be distributed at the villages where many residents are so poor they don’t even own clothes.

Both the basketball and service portions of the trip are organized through Score International.  Lipscomb assistant coach Jay Walton and his wife Stephanie are making their third trip to the Dominican Republic as part of Score mission trips.

The kits are being collected at the Lipscomb Basketball offices in Allen Arena.

Health Kit Items Value: $12 per kit
Place these items inside a sealed one-gallon plastic bag.
