Studies show that 1 in 5 kids in underserved communities do not play sports because they can’t afford to buy the equipment. The youth at the Congregational Church of Grafton are doing something about it.
The Church will collect gently used sports equipment from Thursday, October 22nd until Sunday, November 8th. Donations of gently used rackets, bats, hockey sticks, lacrosse sticks, gloves and sports balls may be dropped off in the lower level of the church during the following times: Mondays from 9-11:30AM, Thursdays from 12:30-2:30PM and Sundays from 9-11:30AM.
The following items will NOT be accepted: shoes and hats.
The Congregational Church is holding the equipment drive in conjunction with the Level Playing Field program. Items collected during the drive will be delivered to one of the programs’ partner agencies.
