Youth Sports Jersey Recycling Program
Have your kids grown out of their red and white youth league jerseys? Sandpoint Parks and Rec. is looking for laundered, gently used Youth Sports Jerseys. You can put those jerseys to great use by donating them back to Parks and Rec.
Each year Sandpoint's Recreation department gives out approximately $2,000 in scholarships to youth programs, generously donated by various organizations. That money covers jersey costs as well as program fees - unless we have previously used, donated jerseys we can offer those who can't afford to purchase them. Keep more money in our scholarship fund for kids to access for recreation program fees by donating jerseys back to us when your children finish the youth leagues.
- Drop off your jerseys during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Sandpoint Parks and Rec, 1123 Lake St. in City Hall. We appreciate your help!
For more information, please call Sandpoint Parks and Recreation at 263-3613.
