Community members asked to clear clutter to do good for kids in need


Hey baseball Fans! Gear for Goals (G4G) is hosting a MEGA sports gear and musical instrument donation drive during the Schaumburg Boomers Baseball game on Friday, June 21st and this is your chance to clear the clutter of gently used sports gear and musical instruments out of your garage or closets and do something good for kids in need.

On this day, G4G is asking fans in attendance to bring along new and used sports equipment and/or musical instruments to donate to children in need. In return, fans will receive a discount for a future Boomers game. Not attending the game? Community members can still make a donation at the G4G truck in the Boomers' Parking Lot from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on June 21st that will feature a live DJ performance. It's a great time to clear the gear in your garage or closets and come out and have some family fun while supporting this worthy cause!

G4G aims to fill an entire semi-truck full of sports equipment and the gear collected will help underprivileged youth in the city and suburbs. Also, the gear will go to some of the many countries G4G now ships to including the Dominican Republic, Kenya, Bolivia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Russia, Philippines, Jamaica, India, and Cuba. In total, G4G seeks to provide equipment to over 10,000 children this year through their 10,000/$10,000 campaign.
