On Saturday, June 4, 2016 Leveling the Playing Field and SAM Soccer will be partnering to host an equipment drive. Any gently used sports equipment (doesn't just have to be soccer) will be accepted.
Drop off locations will be at the turf fields (fields 18-20) and in front of the Discovery Sports Center.
What is Leveling the Playing Field?
Did you know that 1 in 5 underserved households are not getting their kids involved in athletics because of the rising price of sporting equipment?
Leveling the Playing Field works within the community to collect used/excess sporting equipment so that we can ensure that every kid living in and around Washington DC can enjoy the benefits of athletic involvement. Our donations benefit Title I/Charter Schools and youth/after-school programs looking to engage their students in the physical & mental benefits of youth sports participation.
All beneficiaries of Leveling the Playing Field are local kids, right here in Montgomery County.
So clean out your garages and clear the yard of used sporting equipment so that kids who are less fortunate are able to enjoy them! We accept everything except flat bottom shoes, clothing and roller blades. To make a financial contribution to our cause, please visit our website (www.levelingtheplayingfield.org).
