Sporting Goods Drive In Northern Nevada

Boys & Girls Clum
I am so excited the Boys & Girls Club here in Northern Nevada is hosting a sporting goods drive this week. Many if us have school aged children involved in youth sports that seem to out grow their sports attire  rather quickly and we are left with relatively new, or gently used sports attire wondering what we should do with all of it. 

 This week we have a place to donate these items and know they will be dispersed to kids who will be happy to have them and who really need them.

The Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows is hosting a sporting goods drive this week.

The Give Back Like Jack Food and Sporting Goods Drive is accepting nonperishable food items and sporting goods from noon to 6 p.m. today through Friday.Clip Art Sports

Collected food items will be donated to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. Sporting goods will be distributed to agencies that serve children in transition.


The drive is held at the club’s Donald W. Reynolds Facility, 2680 E. Ninth St. Details: 775-331-3605.

The Washoe County School District estimates there are approximately 1800 children in Northern Nevada who are living in motels, homeless shelters, or at the Kids Cottage.

Homeless Liaisons with the Children in Transition program work closely with the school district to help identify children who are homeless and need assistance. By donating non perishable food items and sporting goods you will be those who really, really need them!!
