As you may have heard, my bar mitzvah is coming up in November. In preparation for that event, I am organizing a service project and I think members of the Swampscott baseball community like you may be able to help!
I have become a representative of Pitch In for Baseball, a charity that collects used gear and money donations for youth baseball leagues across the country and around the world that need help keeping baseball alive in their communities. Since 2005, PIFB has donated more than $9 million in equipment to help 800,000 kids play ball in every state and 100 countries worldwide!
Let's keep it going!
If you are willing to make a donation in support of this project, you've come to the right place! You can do that here! Any amount helps!
If you have baseball equipment that your kids can no longer use, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org -- I will come to your house and pick it up! If you prefer to drop off gear at my house at a time that is convenient for you, that also works! I can take anything that is still safe to use -- baseballs, bats, gloves, catcher’s gear, helmets.
This project really means a lot to me. The sport of baseball has given me so much -- happiness, confidence, discipline, friendships, that feeling of being part of a team -- and I want to do as much as I can to help make sure every kid who wants to play baseball has an opportunity to play. By doing this together, I really feel that we can give back to the sport we all love, and the whole baseball community! I hope you will join me!
