Timberwolves give $5,000 grant to Minnetonka nonprofit
Minnetonka disabilities nonprofit Opportunity Partners received a $5,000 grant from the Minnesota Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation for its work in transitioning students with disabilities into life after high school graduation. The grant’s theme is “New Season, New Beginnings,” focusing on offering Minnesota youth a new direction or opportunity.
Opportunity Partners’ Youth Transition Services prepares young people with disabilities to transition out of the special education system and into adulthood by partnering with school districts and assisting the students in making future plans.
The grant will be used for an outdoor basketball court at the Opportunity Partners-Koch Campus, 5500 Opportunity Court, Minnetonka. Funds will pay for the hoop, foundation work for the goal post and concrete work for the court.
Opportunity Partners was presented with the check at the Minnesota Timberwolves game Nov. 2.
