Planning is now underway for kids' outdoor sports activities. I want no child to miss an opportunity to participate in a designated sport because of financial restraints. The Schilke-Novak Kids Sports Trust was established and maintained to provide grants to assure that all kids can participate equally. These grants are available for participating in the organized sports of skating, hockey, softball, baseball, basketball, tennis, golf, martial arts and boxing. All grants made are distributed to the sports organization and are held in confidence.
Brief and simple application forms must be completed. These can be obtained at the Sidner Law offices at 340 East Military Avenue, or Fremont Area Community Foundation at 1005 East 23rd Street. The exception is for application for assistance in ice skating. That is a separate endowment made for the same purpose and those applications can be obtained at the Sidner Law offices or the Sidner Ice Rink. All completed applications should be returned to me at the Sidner Law offices. I realize few kids will read this and therefore request the community generally to give that information to the child or family who has this financial need for participation.
