Because of stay-at-home orders, we do not currently have collection boxes available. However, we are still accepting donations and requests for equipment! For more information, please contact us through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or the Contact Us page. For gear requests, see our Need Gear? page.
The purpose of Halftime Gear is to make playing sports financially viable for lower-income families by providing them with gear.
Sports have positive effects on kids: they build teamwork, inspire self-confidence and leadership, and keep them physically healthy. Recently, prices have been increasing at a rate many families can’t afford, particularly for travel or club teams. Additional expenses such as lessons, healthcare, and payment for the use of rinks, courts, and/or fields can also raise the price of playing sports.
To offset the price of playing sports, our organization aims to collect used equipment from all sports, such as soccer, ice/field hockey, lacrosse, baseball - even individual sports like tennis or archery.
Because of COVID-19, our charity does not currently have collection boxes. However, we are still accepting sports goods using contact-free dropoff (contact us for more information!). After we retrieve the sports equipment donations, they will be quarantined, cleaned, and distributed to those in need.
