Eric Snow donates over $7,600 to local community organizations

Cleveland Cavaliers Co-Captain, Eric Snow, concluded the 2005 year by donating over $7,600 to three local community organizations from the Cleveland and Canton through his Shoot for the Moon Foundation’s “Steals and Assists Donation Program”.

The Center for Families & Children ($3,000), Passages, Inc. ($3,000), and Multi-Development Services of Stark County,Inc. ($1,680.00) each received donations through this initiative to support their efforts to be committed to assisting fathers, families and children.

Snow personally commits to donate $20 per steal and $20 per assist each season. For the 2004-05 regular season, his first with the Cavaliers, Snow accumulated 317 assists and 67 steals, which were the 3rd most in both categories for the Cavaliers last season.

“I started this program when I was in Philadelphia because I believe that a personal commitment to financially assist a few local and grassroots organizations that focus on fathers, families, and children could make a difference,” said Snow. “Many of these organizations are struggling and don’t always have access to consistent funding sources. So this small donation may help them fund a retreat, conference, or some special community activity aimed at supporting fathers and helping children. To give a little back to the people of Northeast Ohio is just my way of saying thanks for so many years of support”.

The Passages Inc. is a non-profit faith based initiative located in the heart of Cleveland. Among their many community programs is their “Reunification Project” that reunites hundreds of children to incarcerated fathers along with specialized retreats for Father-Sons and Father-Daughters.
