giveSPORTS Put a Kid in the Game Image 600pigiveSPORTS provides new and gently-used sports equipment as well as participation fee scholarships so all children have the opportunity to participate in sports. 

WHY giveSPORTS?

The giveSPORTS program provides new and gently-used sports equipment to disadvantaged and displaced children by allowing them the opportunity to get involved in organized sports. Additionally, giveSPORTS provides scholarships to cover the costs of registration and other sports-related fees. Nearly 75 percent of children in low-income families rarely have the opportunity to participate in organized sports. Statistically, participation in extra-curricular sports significantly impacts short and long-term educational, emotional, behavioral, and physical outcomes for disadvantaged, poverty stricken youth.
