Friday, June 14, 2019

The smiles across the faces of the children at the new 76ers Learn & Play Center shined nearly as bright as the newly waxed basketball court they were sitting on.

On Friday, the Sixers Youth Foundation officially opened the doors to a new basketball court and education facility at the Jackie Robinson Community Center in Camden.

The education site is equipped with new computers, books and game consoles for the children to use after school and all summer.

“It is a multipurpose educational center that will get our middle-school aged children ready for the future,” said Archie Berwick, an arena host for the Sixers.
