Leveling the Playing Field
The JCCGW is partnering with Leveling the Playing Field to collect gently-used basketballs, kickballs, soccer balls and cleats for the City of Rockville's youth development programs.
The program is designed to help prevent youth from engaging in delinquent behaviors, specifically drug and alcohol abuse, gang involvement and other criminal activities. By involving at-risk kids in athletics, LTPF teaches valuable life skills that will help children find success in life.
Due to extensive budget cuts, supplying these programs with equipment has become a major challenge. By making this donation, we will allow them to direct their decreased funds to preventative workshop on the consequences of alcohol and drug abuse.
Donate used and excess basketballs, kickballs, soccer balls, and cleats. Donation bin located in the JCCGW lobby.
Volunteers of all ages have been a valuable part of the JCCGW family since it was established in 1913. And now in 2013, we will offer many opportunities for volunteers
to participate in our centennial celebrations.
