Wanted: Used Sporting Equipment

Marshfield Area United Way and Right 2 Play for All have partnered to increase opportunities for youth to participate in sport programs. Our goal is to allow all area youth to participate in sports by providing reasonably priced, used sporting equipment and offering funds to under-privileged children to offset fees associated with youth sports programs.

Starting September 27 and running for two weeks, we are asking the community to donate used sports equipment. Collection boxes will be at MACCI, Marshfield Savings Bank, M&I Bank, Parks & Rec, YMCA, United Way, Columbus, OLP and the Public Elementary Schools. Donations may be dropped off in the Shoppes at Woodridge Mall on September 27 from noon to 4:00, and on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30 to 8:00 up to the sale.

On October 11 there will be a Used Sports Equipment Sale open to everyone from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Shoppes at Woodridge Mall. Don’t miss this opportunity to find gently used sports equipment at an affordable price.

Proceeds from the sale will go to qualified families as scholarships for sports related fees/costs. The success of this program depends upon donations we receive and the success of the sale.

Give all youth in our community the opportunity to play sports by supporting Right 2 Play 4 All!
