Shorewood collecting gently used baseball and softball equipment for youth organization

Little League in Japan
Shorewood is helping to collect new and gently used baseball and softball equipment. They will also accept soccer balls that will be deflated and brought to El Salvador this summer. 

The equipment will be sent to Pitch In For Baseball in Harleyville, PA and will benefit national and international youth baseball and softball teams in depressed areas of the US, as well as countries such as Uganda, India, and Mexico. Most likely, the equipment being sent from SW will help the areas decimated by Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast.

"South Joplin Little League gets back on the field 
"The devastating tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri made a direct hit on South Joplin Little League and the families who play there. More than 250 children "lost everything". Pitch In For Baseball stepped up to help replace the missing equipment, with our donation arriving a mere two weeks after the tornado. 
"With the help from the donation, the league resumed play the same day the equipment arrived."

Bring any donations to the designated collection bin in the Shorewood Student Activity Center before Monday, April 8.

If you have any questions, or would like your donations picked up directly, contact Jonathan Gugger, who is coordinating this for his Eagle Scout project.
