Gear for Goals, a Northbrook-based youth program of non-profit Dreamweaver International, recently teamed together on Sunday, February 16 with compassion partners Willow Creek Church and Gift in Kind to load a 40-foot container from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm at their Bright Hope storage facility located in Hoffman Estates with vital education, medical, and sports items slated for families in the Dominican Republic.

Gear for Goals is on a mission to impact the lives of underprivileged children around the world with the joy and hope that sports brings and this recent effort marks the 9th shipment of sports and other gear to the Dominican for Gear for Goals and the 5th with Gift in Kind Ministry through Willow Creek Church.

"Because of the efforts or our partners and volunteers, needy children of the Dominican will have more hope and opportunity due to their generosity," says G4G Director Dr. Warren Bruhl. "God bless all the volunteers who continue to support this effort."

During this last shipment, over 30 baseball bats, 125 baseball mitts, 15 soccer balls, 5 footballs, 10 basketballs, 150 uniform shirts, 50 uniforms pants, equipment bags and more were donated to benefit kids of the DR.

Donations in all totaled approximately $10,000 in retail value that the families of the DR could never afford.

According to Dr. Bruhl, this recent shipment is equivalent to 30 months' salary for the average laboring mom or dad in the Dominican.

Gear for Goals' mantra, "SPORT = HOPE = OPPORTUNITY" continues to be heard and relief efforts continue. For more information on how you can support this worthy cause, visit More gear can be donated by contacting Dr. Bruhl at or by phone at 847-869-2031.
