(MENAFN- GC Media) FLUSHING, NEW YORK - He rowed across the Atlantic and cycled in the Emirates. Now, Don Victor Mooney, President of H.R. 1242 Resilience Project, is collecting tennis rackets, balls, and school supplies for children in the US Open. The campaign is dubbed: Operation Arthur Ashe. Arthur Ashe championed the power of books and the tennis court. Ashe was the first Black tennis player to win singles titles at the US Open, the Australian open and Wimbledon.
The collection and packing campaign will end on September 12. Outside of New York, the tennis bags will be distributed within some of Emirate’s gateways in the United States. The last tennis bag will be delivered at the Dubai Expo 2020, which opens October 1, 2021.
If Emirates cabin crew have an extended layover in New York, they are welcome to help us pack some tennis bags, said Mooney.
