Local Kids Donate to Kids in Uganda

The 2008 Skyline basketball camp attendees came through big for NAI Commerce One broker Kaly Shippen this week, donating 150 basketball jerseys that will be given to kids in a war-torn region of Uganda this summer in conjunction with humanitarian basketball camps being organized by Kaly's former San Diego State basketball teammate Atim Otii.

"It was encouraging to see what an enthusiastic response we got from the Skyline kids. They are so willing to help out when given the opportunity", Kaly said.
Skyline's star center Robert Edwards even donated a collector's item #23 Michael Jordan jersey that will be a treasured prize for any kid.
