Empowering Youth Through Athletic Involvement
Frequently Asked Questions:
Where Does The Equipment Go?
The donated equipment goes to schools, organizations, and programs that serve at-risk youth. Most equipment goes to programs in the Toledo area, but we will work with programs throughout the Northwest Ohio area.
The best way to keep up with who we are donating to, is to follow our social media accounts!

What Condition Should The Equipment Be In?
We accept used or new equipment. Most of our inventory comes from individual families donating gently used equipment. The programs that we work with will accept equipment of any age as long as it is in serviceable condition.
As a growing organization, we are always looking to best serve our beneficiaries. We ask that any equipment donated is properly cleaned/maintained.
