During my time as an equipment manager for the Syracuse University Football program & The Washington Redskins I personally threw away multiple boxes of sporting equipment. Ever since then, I have begun to notice how much sporting equipment goes to waste. Whether it is mom & dads garage or a professional sports team, we are wasting a huge amount of equipment. And did you know that 1 in 5 underserved households are not getting their kids involved in athletics specifically because of the price of sporting equipment? It is so important for us to combat this statistic and keep kids involved in sports, because studies have shown that children who participate in athletics are 60% less likely to drop out of school! Because of this, our organization collects sports equipment to be donated to underprivileged children across the area.
We are in need of volunteers to help us pick up donations of sporting equipment around the DC area. Pick-ups will vary from individual homes, recreation centers and collegiate athletic departments. Once equipment is picked up, it will be dropped off in Gaitherburg, MD.
Thanks for your interest and for helping us equip these kids for success!
