Used Equipment Fundraising Drive

Sunday May 3rd - AYBSA Fundraising Drive for Used Baseball Equipment and Apparel –

ED Burns Arena 422 Summer Street (Buck Field)

 

In Nicaragua as in Arlington, kids are crazy about baseball.  When the weather cooperates all kids like to hit the fields, play catch, hit dingers, etc.  But unlike in Arlington there are many kids in Valle de Casa Nicaragua who don't have bases, bats, balls, caps or shirts.  They spend most of their time in school or working to help their families to survive. When they do play they use hard shell fruits for balls and rakes and shovels as bats.

 

AYBSA would like to help these kids by organizing a drive to collect used bats, balls, gloves, caps, team jerseys, bases, etc.  AYBSA will package up these items and deliver them to a local nonprofit called Rural Water Ventures (Ruralwaterventures.org).  Rural Water Ventures works with this community to provide fresh water well systems to remote villages in Nicaragua that have no access to clean water.

 

On Sunday May 3rd, from 9am-3pm, in conjunction with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute blood drive outside The Ed Burns Arena at 422 Summer Street, please bring your used baseball equipment and apparel to donate to these enthusiastic, young Nicaraguan baseball players!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

PLAY BALL!!

A.Y.B.S.A. BLOOD DRIVE - PLEASE HELP!

BLOOD DRIVE Sunday, May 3 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.  

Ed Burns Memorial Rink

422 Summer Street, Arlington, MA.

 

Arlington Youth Baseball and Softball Association is sponsoring a blood drive in honor of Catherine Malatesta

 to support the Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI).

There is always a need for blood, especially with so many blood drives canceled,

due to the harsh weather this past winter.

Catherine is a 16 year old life-long resident of Arlington, and former A.Y.B.S.A. softball player, who is currently fighting soft tissue sarcoma. Along with extensive chemotherapy and radiation, as part of her treatment, Catherine has needed multiple blood transfusions.

Please consider donating blood as part of this drive to help ensure sufficient supply for cancer patients like Catherine.   

Visit the link below and schedule a convenient 15 minute block of time as we strive to help Dana Farber Cancer Institute meet patient requirements.  

Please note: You must sign up in advance for a 15 minute block of time to donate blood on May 3rd. We will not be able to accommodate walk-ins that day.
