"It is important for children to know, that although they may not be home for Christmas, they are never forgotten about. Receiving these toys will definitely be a start to them having a great Christmas."

P.I.T.S Sports (http://www.pitssports.org/
) is an organization designed to educate the youth of the many aspects of sports. Many grow up with dreams of becoming a professional athlete, however, if that dream doesn't manifest, they may feel like they've forever lost their chance to be involved with the sport that they love. It is the goal of P.I.T.S. Sports to get them re- acclimated into sports, without them being a direct participant. Through our programs, we educate and prepare them to be successful in supplementary aspects of sports, such as training, coaching, team management, community involvement, and athletic administration at various levels.About The Mac Foundation
