I’ve had the honor of participating in several Champions for Kids SIMPLE Service Projects. When I saw that April’s project was the Odwalla Game Day Challenge I knew I wanted to be involved. Despite the fact that there’s not an athletic bone in my body I come from a family of athletes and sports fans. My grandfather was a frequent volunteer at the Boys & Girls Club in his community. I want to support my local club, too!
This April you can give back by gathering your friends, family and coworkers together for a ball game and encourage them to bring a new or gently used sporting equipment to donate to an organization serving children in your area.
I contacted my local Boys & Girls club and found out that they were in need of football gear for their team. I emailed their wish list to my coworkers and went shopping at Walmart to kick things off.
I stocked up on Odwalla beverages. They’re protein packed and perfect for kids on the field.
I was happy to find cleats since they were at the top of the wish list. Hopefully my friends and coworkers will come through with additional pairs to add to mine. (Kids outgrow their shoes so quickly so maybe there are a few outgrown pairs sitting around!)
I also picked up whistles and footballs to donate. (They were on the wish list, too!) I’m just getting started on my Game Day Challenge. What about you? What organization in your community could use some new sports gear? Join me in April’s SIMPLE Service Project and be One of Millions.
Keep up with Champions for Kids on Facebook and Twitter.
