Donations will bring arts, sports and hope to inner city children in need who participate with the Police Athletic League of Chicago. The Police Athletic League is a non-profit program nationally recognized for providing coaching and mentoring to some of the most at risk children in the country as well as underserved children overseas.

Gear for Goals Executive Director Dr. Warren Bruhl states, "I anticipate a huge turnout for this event as families dig out from the Winter and want to clean out their garages and basements."

Dr. Bruhl added, "Many people have followed and discovered the good work our charity is doing locally and around the world and they want to help and we are thankful for every donation. 'Sport equals hope equals opportunity' is what we have come to see when we bring sports gear to kids in need."

There are children locally and around the world who do not have access to sports gear and musical instruments to fuel their dreams, hopes, and opportunities. You can make a difference! Donate to the G4G/Glenbrook North Spring Sports Gear Drive and help give them hope!

Suggested items to donate include baseball gloves, helmets, balls, bats, soccer balls, basketballs, uniforms, nets, cones, cleats, shin guards, hockey sticks as well as jump ropes, hackey sacks and frisbees. Also accepting guitars, violins and harmonicas as well as more. For a full list of needed items, visit http://www.dreamweaver911.org.
