Demopolis High School’s softball and basketball teams received donations through Aaron’s Community Outreach Program on Thursday afternoon.

Each team received a $1,000 check donation from Aaron’s to go toward their equipment and other expenses. This is the second year that Aaron’s has donated to the high school. Kyle Razee and Connie Burdett represented Aaron’s at the check presentations.

Softball head coach Joey Browder said the donation is greatly appreciated.

“It’s a huge donation for the program,” he said. “It helps fund our year. With last year’s donation, we were able to add a weight room to our softball facility and make some improvements to the field. Every bit of it goes to the girls and this program.”

“We are self-sufficient, so we have to pay for our uniforms and travel,” he said. “This will help us do that. I’ve bought practice uniforms with this in the past. I just want to thank Aaron’s for everything they do for us and the community.”
