VYS "Plays It Forward" to Support Children in Need

Make a difference in the lives of a less fortunate child in the Washington D.C. area by cleaning out your gear bags and garages of used sporting equipment.    

On March 23rd, VYS will "Play if Forward" by partnering with Leveling the Playing Field to collect used/excess sporting equipment to ensure that kids living in and around Washington D.C. can enjoy the benefits of athletic involvement.  

Leveling the Playing Field will bring their collection van to Kilmer Middle School from 5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m. to collect used/excess sporting equipment* to donate to children in need.   

Kilmer Middle School and Kilmer Center
8100 Wolftrap Road, Vienna, VA 22182

If you have any questions or know of an organization that might benefit from Leveling the Playing Field's donation grants, email Jack Boettger at or Leveling the Playing Field at  

*Donations should be gently used or new and can be for any sport.  Leveling the Playing Field does not accept non-cleated shoes, clothing or football helmets.
