Commit With Us to Save Children from Gun Violence

From 2021 - Present, Over 500 people have been victims of gun violence in the city of Philadelphia. Shoot Basketballs NOT People is founded and led by Garry Mills whose loved ones and friends were murdered in the tragic shootings.

Shoot Basketballs NOT People is a non-profit organization located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Our mission is to use basketball as a
vehicle to change and save lives.

At Shoot Basketballs NOT People, we focus on helping youth to gain mental clarity through provided resources, supportive services,
education and guidance to develop positive interactions. Our services will help youths’ psychological well-being and satisfactory adjustment to society and to the demands of everyday life.

At Shoot Basketballs NOT People, we aim to introduce more programs/activities in future such as SSAT test tutoring, NCAA Clearinghouse Classes, Financial Literacy Classes, Nutrition Education etc. in order to get the youths and parents engaged together.

Vision Statement: Our vision is to become the organization that will change the future of all youth who struggle with the peer pressure of conforming to negative measures as a way of life. Our vision reflects our values: integrity, service, excellence, and teamwork.
