For their trip, we needed to figure out something for the boys to do Motzei Shabbos. Walnut Creek didn't have too many cheap, frum-boy-friendly activities.
Pure Hashgacha Protis is all it took.
The gabai of the community had seen a basketball hoop that was left at the curb, perhaps by disgruntled Magic fans.
Motzei Shabbos, we pulled up, and with a few boys lugged the heavy hoop into the van. The house was hosting a party, and we heard triumphant yells of, "Hey, look! They're taking the basketball hoop!!"
We yelled our thanks, and brought this bad boy down to the Chabad House. It was a huge ten or eleven foot basket, and the hoop was bent badly, but the ball could still fit in.
For an hour the boys played some heavy hoops, and none of us could believe the amazing Hashgacha Protis. Seriously. We had nothing for them to do, and were worrying the whole trip.
Baruch Hashem!!
