Donate to Zach’s Gently Used and New Sports Equipment Drive
My name is Zach and I am 11 years old. I love to play sports. My family is very supportive and makes sure that I have all the equipment that I need to play soccer, baseball, and basketball. All kids are not as lucky as me.
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?
I am working with the nonprofit “Leveling the Playing Field” to collect used and new sporting goods to be donated to kids in need. The cost of sports equipment has left a growing number of kids on the sidelines and I am working to ensure those kids have access to completely free equipment so they can get off the sidelines and in the game!
"Leveling the Playing Field" works within the community to collect used/excess sporting equipment so that they can ensure that every kid living in and around the greater Baltimore area can enjoy the benefits of athletic involvement. 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.
Can you help me out? Clean out your garages, look through any items that are sitting around your house not being used, find equipment that your child has outgrown, or purchase a new item from the list of accepted items. All donations will be distributed to students in the Baltimore area.
For information on what items are accepted please click here:
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call 301-844-5620 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If anyone has any equipment, you can get it to me in the following ways.

Thank you to everyone who has donated already and thank you to the businesses, school, and organization that have allowed me to have a drop box at their locations.
If you would like me to come to you and pick up any items you may have to donate, please contact my mom at StacyLoveridge@gmail.com.
My goal is to collect 100 items to donate to “Leveling the Playing Field.”
Thank you for helping me to reach my goal!
