The YMCA recently recognized Hallie Schiff '21 for donating dozens of pairs of sneakers to underprivileged teens in Atlanta.
For the past two years, Hallie, who plays on Westminster's varsity girls basketball team, has collected new and used sneakers to donate to youth organizations in the Atlanta area.
“I wanted to do something other people don’t think about doing,” she told the Atlanta Jewish Times about her philanthropic work. “I know a lot of kids play basketball. There are a lot of courts where they can play outside.”
Last year, Hallie partnered with Under Armour to donate 50 pairs of new basketball shoes to the East Lake YMCA Youth and Teen Center. She helped the children pick out a new pair of shoes and played basketball with them.
