Bucks' Harris donates basketball sets to Penfield Children's Center


Milwaukee Bucks forward Tobias Harris will deliver five new toddler-sized adjustable basketball sets to Penfield Children's Center to benefit children with special needs.

This donation will allow toddlers of all abilities at Penfield to play while practicing a variety of important developmental and gross-motor skills, including eye-hand coordination, competitive play, turn-taking and cooperative teamwork.

Penfield, whose mission is to help infants and young children with and without disabilities reach their full potential through early childhood education, therapy services and family programs, will use these basketball sets both during recreation time and physical therapy sessions. Media is invited to attend.

"We are grateful for Tobias' generosity," said Christine Holmes, president of Penfield Children's Center, 833 N. 26th St. "Penfield uses sports therapy to give special needs children a small piece of playground fun, but also to help them develop skills to become more self-reliant. Tobias' donation helps us do that and reflects so well upon him."
