Benton Harbor non-profit raising money for indoor sports facility during open house January 16
BENTON HARBOR, Mich. - The Harbor Impact Foundation is dedicated to "changing lives through sports" and on Monday, the community is invited to join its efforts during the Renaissance Athletic Club's 2023 Open House and Fundraiser.
The foundation's goal is to build a state-of-the-art indoor training facility to bring kids from different racial and socioeconomic backgrounds together, provide tutors, offer mental health support, and provide more college scholarships for local student-athletes.
The Harbor Impact Foundation helps support Harbor Impact Basketball and local basketball coach Rodney Alexander, Jr., who starred at Benton Harbor High School (with the NBA's Wilson Chandler) and then went on to play professionally overseas for a decade.
Harbor Impact has kids leagues and AAU travel teams for children from kindergarten through 12th grade from all over Berrien County.
