“You have not lived a perfect day until you’ve done something for someone who CAN NOT re-pay you.”
Coach John Wooden

Basics connection to Sandy Hook
Coach McGannon grew up in nearby Norwalk, CT and played frequently as a kid in Newtown, and at the Sandy Hook school. Basics was the very first service organization permitted back into Newtown after the 2012 shootings. We have been back every year since, travelling over the Christmas break to the Newtown Youth Academy (the NYA). All proceeds go to the NYA. HELP if you can with this torn community. (call 616 402-1600) This video describes what this town has been and continues to experience.
