Bowling 4 Backpacks (B4B) is an annual fundraiser started in 2004 by Coach Lionel Hollins. Proceeds from the bowling tournaments assist in providing underprivileged students with vital necessities for school, including backpacks, supplies and uniforms. The success of Bowling 4 Backpacks has made it possible for Lionel Hollins Charities to provide over 4,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to at-risk students. Additionally through this effort, dental cleanings, vision screenings and immunizations are administered to the community, free of cost.
With your support and the support of our community partners we can continue to invest in the lives of so many deserving boys and girls. By clicking the pay pal link you will help provide backpacks, school supplies and uniforms to low income children living in the greater Memphis area.
