GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - Every baseball fan remembers what it feels like to get their first glove. The smell of fresh leather fills the air as you slip the stiff glove onto your hand for the first time. But it’s a feeling some kids never experience.
That’s why the Whitecaps Community Foundation is hosting its annual Give-A-Glove Drive, supplying inner-city kids with equipment to play the sport! When you donate a new or gently used piece of baseball or softball equipment, you will receive four lawn tickets to West Michigan Whitecaps, a coupon for a free Wendy’s meal, and a guest pass to any grand rapids YMCA location!
Donations are being accepted through June 13th.
Drop off donations at the following locations:
- Fifth Third Bank Branch
- YMCA Location (David D Hunting, Spartan Stores, Wolverine WorldWide, Visser, Southeast, Lowell)
- Fifth Third Ballpark Box Office
