Jordan's, Red Sox Foundation launch 2017 Double Play Youth Baseball Donation Program
February 10, 2017,
Jordan's Furniture has once again partnered with the Red Sox Foundation to launch the 2017 Double Play Youth Baseball Donation Program.
Between now and April 2, the Top 100 Company will accept equipment donations at any Jordan’s location in Massachusetts, Rhode Island or New Hampshire, including the company's Taunton distribution center.
The program is accepting equipment such as bats (metal only), catcher’s equipment, gloves, cleats (metal and plastic), as well as new baseballs and softballs.
“This is the seventh year that we are running our youth baseball donation program because we have seen in past seasons that the equipment gets directly in the hands of kids who need it,” said Eliot Tatelman, president and CEO of Jordan’s Furniture. “In this day and age of pay-to-play, there are thousands of kids that just cannot afford to play sports. We are excited to, again, team up with the Red Sox Foundation – the perfect partner.”
“We are grateful to partner with community champion Jordan’s Furniture on this terrific equipment drive for the seventh year,” said Red Sox Foundation Executive Director Gena Borson. “Through the collection of gently used equipment, Jordan’s is making summer games possible for many kids in RBI and in our community.”
