Basketball teams work with special needs children at Magic Paintbrush Project
The Binghamton University men’s and women’s basketball programs made their annual trip to the Magic Paintbrush Project, at its Johnson City office inside the Oakdale Mall, to work with special needs students at a teamwork seminar called “Paint with the Players”. Head coaches Tommy Dempsey and Nicole Scholl escorted their teams to the Magic Paintbrush Project on Monday, January 14.
Each year the Bearcats basketball programs spend time at “The Project” giving back to their community by working with special needs children in a creative and fun way. Students from area school districts and agencies participate in a morning of innovative fun with the Binghamton players. The workshop assists special needs children in learning how to use teamwork when dealing with daily challenges.
