PSA from Jackie Johnson, Public Information Officer for Alachua County Public Schools
“One of our high schools today received a call from a local business owner who said she’d been contacted by a company called Sports Promotions Network (SPN). SPN’s representative claimed to be working with the school’s boys basketball program and was soliciting money for t-shirts and uniforms.
However, the school is NOT working with SPN, and we’re concerned that other local businesses are being contacted by this company. After some quick checking, we find there have been concerns in other school districts across the company with this company.
An article that ran a few months ago in a newspaper in Montana referred to “a long history of questionable practices” and said the company had been given an F rating by the Better Business Bureau.”
