19 Sep Sports Donation Helps Underprivileged Athletes in Washington County
Organization: WCJFL-Boonsboro Titans
Lives Impacted: 200+
Donation: Sporting Goods
WCJFL-Boonsboro Titans is one of the many teams that make up the Washington County Junior Football League (WCJFL). The goal or mission of the WCJFL is to provide a safe, fun learning environment for the youth of our community. We aspire to run a well-organized team, including practices, social events and overall administration. We take our mission statement – “Teaching Life Lessons Through the Sport of Football” – seriously and will always emphasize hard work, sportsmanship, teamwork, honor, character development, and doing the right thing over “W’s and L’s”, for we know that if we focus on imparting those important life skills to our athletes, winning will take care of itself.
We live in an area where at least 1 out of 4 live under the poverty line and the children receive free lunch at school. Receiving quality items, like these sporting goods, helps bring tremendous quality and value to these kids’ lives. Thanks to the size of this donation, we were able to help our team, other high school players in our town, and those at the local shelter. The socks, track apparel, shoes and equipment really helped the football, basketball, and track team athletes stay motivated this season.
The athletes were not the only ones that benefited from this donation, we were also able to donate quality socks to the local shelter in town. Every year there is a SockTober event in the community, and this year we were able to bring a large amount to donate. We were so proud to offer two overflowing backpacks to the shelter on behalf of Good360. We stuffed each bag full of clothes and gear to give to a young family that really needed these items, bringing so much joy to their hearts. I can’t say thank you enough to your organization and the companies that donated. It really helps a lot of people that would probably go without.
