This has been a busy month as we have equipment heading locally in Massachusetts as well to children in Honduras, Kenya and Mexico. We are also fortunate to be able to support an upcoming HIV Awareness initiative and tournament that will be held in Sierra Leone.
To commemorate the 5th anniversary of this event, Commodore Builders and Playing It Forward, are partnering to provide sports equipment to disadvantaged children around the world.
There’s no entry fee to play in the Dodge Ball Tournament. But each team member is asked to bring at least one piece of new or gently used soccer, basketball or baseball equipment to the game. If every member of all 19 teams brings a piece of sports gear, we’ll be able to give 100 more kids around the world an opportunity to play.
