FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Westfield, IN - The City of Westfield's Grand Park Sports Campus is proud to announce its holiday sporting goods drive, a community-driven initiative dedicated to providing essential equipment and gear to support local youth sports organizations in Hamilton County. Matt Trnian, Grand Park Director, says that the effort demonstrates the positive impact the sports campus can have beyond youth sports.

"Our team is passionate about the impacts we can have on sport and the overall community. We encourage visitors to Grand Park to share in our passion and help give back to those in need.”

The holiday sporting goods drive collection period began on November 6th and will extend through December 13th. We welcome donations of new or gently used sporting equipment to benefit young athletes in Hamilton County. The following items are needed:

Cleats
Lacrosse gear
Helmets
Baseball and softball equipment
Equipment bags
Basketballs
Dance attire
Wrestling gear

With Westfield Youth Sports, Inc. (WYSI), Molly Wright shared their enthusiasm as one of the benefiting organizations. "Westfield Youth Sports (WYSI) is excited to participate in the Grand Park Sports Sporting Good Drive this season. “Many of our local youth don't have the opportunity or equipment to participate in sports; we don't want that to be a barrier. WYSI offers participation scholarships and gift cards for equipment if needed. Kids learn many great life lessons through sports, and we hope to help provide that for them."

You can contribute by dropping off sports items at several designated locations. For further information or inquiries, please contact gpadmin@westfield.in.gov. You can conveniently donate directly to a Westfield Youth scholarship athlete by scanning the supplied QR code.
