Welcome to Playing It Forward!
**Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, collections and distribution of equipment are on hold**
Playing It Forward, Inc. is a Massachusetts based 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to provide sports equipment to disadvantaged children throughout the United States and around the world. Since 2009, we have reached over 30,000 kids across the US and in over 20 countries.
Our goal is to promote health and wellness amongst the children we reach while providing them with the equipment needed to develop their skills and remain active. We support communities and organizations, with limited resources, the tools needed in order to:
- maintain solid sports organizations and after school programs
- promote health and well-being and an active lifestyle for the children they serve
Disadvantaged youth should not be deprived of the opportunity to grow, explore and play and we aim to do our part by providing these children with the tools needed to support an active lifestyle.
We are also doing our part to support the environment by recycling usable gently used equipment.
“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945)
