Delta School District Students Share the Spirit of Philanthropy this Holiday Season - Story #5

December 19, 2014

The North Delta Secondary grade 8 boys basketball team pooled their money and bought a teammate in need a new pair of basketball shoes. The idea was brought forth by a former ND grad and alum, Sartaj Thiara, who has a brother on the team. The team did this without direction from their coaches and presented the shoes to player Africa this week during lunch break. Africa went on to play his best game yet, scoring 6 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 blocked shot. It must be the shoes!

Needless to say it was a powerful moment and reminded everyone of the genuine care and compassion the students at North Delta have for one another!
