Request for April 27 Garage Sale Donations to benefit Cedar Riverside Community Traveling Basketball Program 

Article by Claudia Kittock

A year ago, I realized that the Cedar Riverside community is our next door neighbor, and yet there seem to be very few things we do together as neighbors. In trying to figure out how to begin to reach out to extend invitations, I was advised to talk to Coach Jennifer Weber from the Cedar Riverside Community School. I am honored to say that I now count Coach Jennifer as a neighbor and a friend, who has brought untold connections and richness to my life.

Coach Jennifer runs an amazing Cedar Riverside Community Traveling Basketball program, and the first event I attended in the Cedar Riverside neighborhood was a basketball tournament. As a former ‘Basketball Mom’ I felt instantly at home and loved watching the ferocious basketball players engaged in wonderful competitions. Coach Jennifer embodies all of the best qualities of the coach you would want for your child or grandchild. Working hard, playing fairly, and being a good person are the most important parts of her program.

The program is holding a Garage Sale Fundraiser event on April 27-29 that will benefit student athletes from this program by assisting with tournament fees, uniforms, coaches training, referee training, travel expenses, etc. These young people deserve our assistance by helping them with donations. I KNOW you all have things you no longer need that could be put up for sale.

  Donations are being accepted and can be dropped off at Cedar Riverside Community School, or pickups can be arranged by contacting Coach Weber at or 763-464-2790. Please look through your home and donate from the heart. These basketball players are our neighbors and deserve our support!
