'Ball Together Now' collects sports equipment for Flint children
FLINT (WJRT) - There's a new effort to make sports equipment more available to Flint children.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Flint is partnering with Cline, Cline & Griffin, Detroit Pistons, Planet Fitness, and Siwek Construction for the 'Ball Together Now' program.
The group is asking the community for new or gently used sports items such as basketballs, soccer balls, footballs, tennis rackets, cleats, baseball hats, helmets, yoga mats, and more.
Organizers said all Flint children should have the opportunity to play sports without cost being a barrier.
