Since being launched a few years ago by Camden native, Tyheem Baker, the charity has focused its attention on helping the next generation of kids around the city.

“The Rebirth of Camden Foundation, at its heart, is about kids, especially,” volunteer Joe Bisicchia said. “When it comes to getting them ready for school at the end of August, the foundation always comes through with school supplies.”

These supplies have included backpacks, writing utensils, books, and even winter clothing to help deal with the harsher cold weather.

“So far, the Rebirth of Camden Foundation has helped hundreds of kids and every year wants to advance that even more,” Bisicchia said.

The foundation has used basketball as a tool to connect with the community, which has helped garner tremendous support.

This Saturday, August 2, they host the 3rd Annual Rebirth of Camden Basketball Charity Classic.

The event takes place from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Camden High School.

“Two big games are on tap and it’s to benefit the local children and local shelters in the community,” he said. “Some of the best talent in the region to be on the court and that’ll include pros.”

Those games include a Camden alumni game as Camden High School takes on Woodrow Wilson High School, and a battle for bragging rights with Jersey vs. Philly.

Admission for this great basketball showcase is $10. All proceeds benefit the Rebirth of Camden Foundation and their mission.

For more information and tickets, call 856-689-4234 or visit the event website.

“We see the excitement as we join other organizations, as well, in the optimism of helping the city grow.”
