A new pair of shoes for Chase who lives to play basketball

Posted May 9, 2018
When Chase moved to the US a few months ago, he lost everything in Hurricane Maria. He lives with his mom, who is a single mom and a very hard worker. He plays basketball everyday and could really use a good pair of sneakers.

Chase is 15 years old and lives in Philadelphia, PA

Chase moved to Philadelphia from Puerto Rico in January after he and his family lost everything in the hurricane. He loves basketball and has a knack for rhyme. He makes up raps almost constantly and is always tapping rhythms. Chase speaks very little English but his outgoing spirit will be helpful acquiring the new language. He's quite a survivor .
