SPORTS 4 THE KIDS
Alpha Authentics is proud to support Sports 4 the Kids, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, committed to providing underserved children throughout central Florida the opportunity to participate in sports programs with financial scholarships and sports equipment.
Youth sports can be expensive. It is estimated that over 20% of all children living in the Tri-County Central Florida area (Orange, Osceola, and Seminole Counties) are living in poverty, and over 10,000 children are homeless. League registration fees, equipment, apparel, and transportation expenses can all add up to a substantial amount that prevents many struggling families from enrolling their kids in sports programs. It is estimated that the average cost to participate in a youth sports program in Central Florida is about $200 per child each season. Some leagues offer scholarships, but not nearly enough scholarships are offered to help provide opportunities to the financially disadvantaged children in our community that wish to participate.
NEW HOPE FOR KIDS - MASCOT GAMES
Gruff, the Alpha Authentics Brand Ambassador, participates in the Community Festival at the Mascot Games to help support their cause.
New Hope for Kids mission is to support children and families grieving the death of a loved one and to grant wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses in Central Florida.
New Hope achieves its mission through two programs – The Center for Grieving Children and Wish for Kids – which provide assistance to children and their families during some of life’s most difficult challenges. New Hope for Kids also provides support services such as family events, resource information, and referral to other agencies for assistance when necessary. Our programs are available to children ages 3-19 who live in the Central Florida area.
