Please share your mission. 

The Sports Shed gives kids positive alternatives to gangs and violence through organized sports. We provide quality sports equipment to schools and athletic programs in under resourced communities.

Describe how your organization lives/realizes its mission. 

Our program model is simple. We source needed equipment and gear through donations of gently used sports equipment from individuals and organizations. We source new gear from athletic companies at below wholesale costs. We work directly with schools and sports programs in need through sponsorship request forms. We confirm, fulfill and deliver the needed equipment to run safe and competitive programs. The fulfillment of the sponsorship request forms enables kids to get off the street and engage in the lifelong benefits of sports.
