PHOENIX — ABC15 Arizona and Earnhardt Auto Centers kick off the inaugural 2nd Chance Sports Gear Drive campaign to help youth and teens in need of sports gear.
While it can seem like a simple purchase, for many families, buying a basketball, baseball or even a new football may be out of reach for parents working to make ends meet. That’s why ABC15 Arizona, Earnhardt Auto Centers and BIG 94.5 Phoenix are teaming up to provide viewers the opportunity to help by donating new or gently used sports gear that will be given to athletes of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley. The donated sports gear will support equity for all players by providing them with their own gear to use at home or after school at practice.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley is most in need of footballs and football helmets, soccer bags/balls, basketballs, baseball and softball bats/gloves/balls, volleyballs and kickballs/dodgeballs.
The community is invited to drop-off their new and gently used sports gear at all 17 Earnhardt Dealerships now through Feb. 28. Donate online at any time by visiting abc15.com/gear.
