Sam Allen enjoyed bouncing a basketball in his driveway but recently told his mom he would like to have a basketball hoop, too. Soon, a family friend found a second-hand hoop and gifted it to Sam. 

That’s when Sam had another idea. 

“He said, ‘Let’s put it somewhere that everyone can use it,’” recalls Sam’s mother, Katie Sell.
