    Basketballs and Basketball Shoes Donations Needed for Recycling Program

    Canada Games Sport for Life Centre
    Basketball Manitoba's Recycling Program is in need of donations to boost its stock of used basketballs and basketball shoes for distribution to under-served children in Manitoba.  There are 10 locations in Manitoba you can donate your gently used equipment to us including at the new Canada Games Sport for Life Centre (image to the right) and the new Dakota Community Centre Fieldhouse.  See below maps (above).  

    Basketball Manitoba is pleased to partner with Winnipeg's Got Sole, Winnipeg Minor Basketball Association, Basketballs for Inner City Kids, the Manitoba Aboriginal Sports and Recreation Commission (MASRC), the Boys and Girls Club of Winnipeg and KidSport to actively collect gently used basketball equipment.  We are calling on the entire basketball community to donate basketballs and basketball shoes to the program so they can be 'rebounded' over to someone in need. You can donate your items to the program by dropping off your gently used basketballs or basketball shoes to one of the below locations.

    Basketballs Recycled to Date = 1323
    Shoes Recycled to Date = 1562

    Three reasons why you should donate to the Basketball Equipment Recycling Program...
    1. Help a child in need who wants to play basketball but cannot without the basic equipment
    2. Reduce the amount of garbage heading to our landfills
    3. De-clutter your basement of unneeded basketballs or basketball shoes 
    Donated items will be distributed at no end cost to those in need to...
