HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Your donations help us expand access and equity within youth sports and recreation programs in under-resourced communities.

DESCRIPTION

Did you know that 1 in 5 under-served families do not register their kids in youth sports because of the price of sports equipment? Donate new or gently-used sports equipment to be redistributed to those in need.  Sports include Football, Baseball, Ice Hockey, Volleyball, Soccer, Field Hockey, Playground, Fitness (Yoga), Swim, Frisbees, Racquet Sports, Whistles, Pinnies, Cones, etc.
