Many households have a variety of used sports equipment stored in their attics, garages or sheds. Balls, bats, shoes, etc. that at one time saw action but now have been "retired" for a variety of reasons.
Charlotte Sports Closet aims to get these items in the hands of children in the Charlotte (NC) community who can best use them. The hope is that this gear will help these youth try a new sport and maybe find their passion, while also instilling the confidence, responsibility and teamwork that comes with playing a sport.
Charlotte Sports Closet looks to partner with local Charlotte elementary schools and community centers to provide the gently-used equipment donated by members of the community. Interested in adding a Sports Closet to your organization, contact email@example.com.
