With your help, our Kids In Difficult Situations Bags will help equip many children and youth with school supplies for the upcoming school year. The following is a general list of supplies we are requesting through MSA School Bags. While all of the following supplies are needed, MSA School Bags typically runs low on donations of index note cards, highlighters, protractors, kindergarten writing tablets, beginner pencils, facial tissue, binders, loose-leaf paper, pencil boxes, and graphing paper.
Our Thanksgiving Mission
“This is a time of the year where families really need help. We want to put into practice the universally known truth that “it is more blessed to give than to receive”. Please join us this holiday season and bring joy to families that deserve but are not able to afford a true Thanksgiving meal. “Help make this a Thanksgiving these families will never forget.”
Proverbs 11:25 says “…he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.” Think about whom you can bless this year. Let us bless you as we give thanks for all we have.
The Creating Smiles at Christmas program has been serving those in need across several different communities. We believe children in poverty deserve a happy time during Christmas. To enrich children hope, strength and joy.
We started this program out a couple of years ago with just a few youths. The growth has been unbelivable. A special shout out to all the coaches and volunteers, this event would not have been possible without you. I would like to thank everyone else that supported Midwest Sports Academy in this event. We couldn’t have done this without you.
We had over 120 kids for this years program.
We had more than 20 coaches
and a ton of volunteers
Our mission is to provide the kids ages 3-16 years old with opportunities and resources. We are dedicated through our core values of developing a strong work ethic, personal discipline, honesty, and respect to inspire youth and others to make positive decisions throughout their lives.
