Calling for Donations of new and gently used youth sports equipment.
Neighborhood Place of Puna is seeking donations of new and gently used youth sports equipment for our Sports Rescue Program.
Neighborhood Place of Puna’s Sports Rescue program takes donated sports equipment like footballs, cleats, protective gear, and makes it available to East Hawaii children and youth who cannot afford to buy the equipment necessary to play sports.
Neighborhood Place of Puna believes that every child deserves the right to play team sports. The Sports Rescue program is one way that we as a community can share what we have to make sure that every child has a chance to play team sports.
Donations will be accepted at our Pahoa office, 15-3039 Pahoa Village Rd, during business hours: 8:00am-4:30pm, Monday – Friday.
Other collection dates include:
- Saturday, April 27th: 10 am – 1 pm- Sangha Hall in Hilo at the Celebrate Your Family Event
- Saturday May 18th, 5pm- 10pm- Civic Auditorium at the Paradise Roller Girls Season Opener
- Saturday June 22nd, 8am– Maku’u Market at the Annual Free School Supply Distribution
This program is made possible through a grant from Omidyar ‘Ohana Fund of the Hawai’i Community Foundation.
Neighborhood Place of Puna (NPP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to help families raise healthy safe keiki by providing families with the tools and supports they need to be successful.
