They successfully gathered equipment from OLL families for a wide variety of sports. They are very grateful to their community for their support and generosity. Several weeks later, members of the Equip a Kid committee delivered everything collected to Community Matters 2 Executive Director, L’Quette Taylor. He was very excited to receive the equipment ranging from soccer balls, soccer cleats and shinguards, to baseball gloves, balls and bats, tennis rackets and tennis balls, lacrosse sticks and balls and field hockey gear. CM2 runs a summer camp in the city of Poughkeepsie with over 100 kids in attendance and he said that all of the gear would be put to great use. He was very appreciative of all of the gear and enjoyed talking with the students about school and sports. Equip a Kid would like to thank the Our Lady Of Lourdes community for their generous donations and they hope to do this again in spring 2023.
