Basketball in the Barrio brings hoops, art to students starting Friday, virtual gathering Saturday

El Paso’s 29th Basketball in the Barrio camp, which began in 1992, will be holding a drive-thru pickup on Friday June 11,th.

On the street side of the Armijo Recreation Center, 700 East Seventh Avenue, the first 100 children ages 5-10 will receive a basketball, t-shirt, jump rope, art materials, harmonica and a book.

Organizers say this is first-come first-serve while supplies last!  On June 11, 2021 at 3:30 pm. – 6:30 p.m.   Then on Saturday, June 12, the program goes virtual for all the community.

Basketball in the Barrio will be virtual from 10:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m. MDT on Saturday June 12, 2021. The basketball camp on Zoom is sponsored by Household Furniture.  

The special guest volunteer for this year’s Basketball in the Barrio will be Chicago’s own Shawn Harrington. Shawn is a former New Mexico State University point guard (1995-1996) and his astonishing heroism is the subject of author and camp Director Rus Bradburd’s book “All the Dreams, We’ve Dreamed.”

Basketball in the Barrio and Executive Director Steve Yellen thank Household Furniture as the sponsor of the 29th El Paso Basketball in the Barrio program.
