Tuesday, Cope Middle School's boys basketball teams played a benefit game against Barksdale airmen.

The fundraiser is part of Cope's "Helping Hearts" community initiative.

The school will purchase wheelchairs for special needs children at an orphanage in Peru.

On a recent trip a Cope special education teacher visited the orphanage, prompting the fundraiser.
