AAA is collecting new and used sports equipment at its office in Madera to donate to the City of Madera Parks and Community Services Department for use in its summer programs.
“We’ve done school supply drives in the community in the past to donate to local schools, and since those went well we wanted to do a sports equipment drive,” said Marlissa Carlson, insurance manager for AAA and a Rotary Club member. “The parks department has so many summer programs coming up so they will need additional sports equipment.”
AAA is asking locals to donate gently used or new baseball and tee ball equipment including bases, tees, bats, and balls, and soccer balls, basketballs and jump ropes.
The drive will last through the end of June, Carlson said.
