Play It Forward Peoria
Play It Forward Peoria gives children the opportunity to enjoy the many benefits of youth sports participation. The program collects new and gently-used sports and playground equipment from the local youth sports community. We sort the donations to either be used to help fund the program or distribute the equipment to schools and organizations working to provide an affordable and accessible option to under-resourced youth groups, community programs and schools throughout the area.
Please use your best judgment on the condition of equipment before donating. If you wouldn’t trust your kid using/wearing it, neither will we! Tax-deductible receipts are available upon request.
