12 year old Ian wrote at the top of his holiday wish list: "to be on a basketball team in the community."
His family was matched up with the Laurel Board of Trade as their donor, who was able to pull some strings with Laurel Parks and Recreation to get the fees waived for Ian to be an official member of a local youth basketball team.
Ian and his mom were overjoyed to hear that his wish was fulfilled, complete with a brand new basketball, shoes, and uniform so he could join practice sessions right away. We may not always be able to help with the big things, but sometimes itâ€™s the little things that make the biggest difference!
Here is one girlâ€™s thank you letter to LARS for the gifts she received through our Holiday Program
