BRACEBRIDGE — A local group is organizing the first sports equipment exchange for youth in Bracebridge on Saturday, May 12.
Family, Youth and Child Services of Muskoka will be collecting gently used sports equipment from Bracebridge residents to give to youth.
The exchange gives Bracebridge residents the opportunity to clean out their garage and give outgrown or unused sports equipment to someone who may use it. It gives youth the opportunity to find new equipment for their summer activities.
Bracebridge residents can drop their gently used sports equipment at the end of their driveway for pickup at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 12. Items can include any small sports equipment such as balls, bats, gloves, skates, skateboards, etc.
Youth and children are invited to the District of Muskoka Office on 49 Pine St. between 1 and 4 p.m. that afternoon. They will be able to select a sports item for free.
Lynn MacKay, one of the organizers, said the campaign is for Bracebridge residents this year, but if it is successful, they hope to expand it to all of Muskoka next year.
