HHH To Host Slam Dunk Basketball Tourney Benefiting Homeless

Published March 13, 2024

Pastors and members of their congregations, high school students and staff members and formerly unhoused members of society now living productive lives will participate in the inaugural Community Basketball Tournament to raise funds for Holliday's Helping Hands, an organization that shelters homeless individuals as well as mothers recently released from incarceration and prepares them for independent living. The tournament also marks the start of the Holliday's Helping Hands Foundation Scholarship application process in which high school students interested in pursuing higher education via a trade school, two-year college or four-year university may pick up their applications, which must be completed by April 12, 2024.

Among the evening's festivities are live music, celeb appearances, food and cash prizes. The doors open at 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 16 at The Rapheld Chappel Gymnasium located at 8222 South San Pedro Drive in Los Angeles. The public are invited and tickets are $2 each.

"What better way to call attention to the needs of LA's homeless community than by drawing together members from all sectors of our community to join together for an evening of fun and excitement," says Miss Katina Holliday, founder and CEO of Holliday's Helping Hands. "We look forward to joining forces and meeting members of the community who are interested in stamping out homelessness right here in our own backyard and offering scholarships to local youth interested in pursuing higher education."

Miss Holliday established her eponymous nonprofit in 2018 to help LA County's general homeless population as well as young mothers recently released from incarceration. Holliday's Helping Hands (HHH) has created a formula that has been especially productive for clients that involves them developing "roadmaps" for their futures. These are detailed, comprehensive plans that help them hone their lifestyle skills, plan home budgets, prepare for job interviews and become good neighbors and citizens. The nonprofit also offers its Shine Ambassador Program, which trains and prepares them for jobs in various fields including food service, landscape maintenance, screen printing and customer service. HHH currently boasts a workforce of 200 ranging from social work to maintenance.
