Gear Up For Kids

THANK YOU for your generosity!  We were able to help over 40 families with ‘new to them’ sports gear!


Distribution Day-Saturday April 14th

First Come, First Served


Clean out your closet, check your basement, go through your garage!   The Vincennes Parks Department is collecting sports equipment to give out to children in need!

Along with our sponsors: Blazer 91.1 WVUB, The Bridge 96.7 WFML, Yochum Chrysler, and the  Salvation Army;

We accepted donations at Davis Hall  (1200 North 2nd Street), on the campus of  Vincennes University (across from VU Police Department) on Friday April 6th, from 7am-6pm.

We are still asking for:

Tennis rackets     tennis balls     baseball gloves     baseball bats     baseball helmets     cleats     basketballs

Footballs     soccer balls     shin guards     skateboards     softball gloves     softball bats     softball helmets

  • Anything that your child has outgrown or doesn’t play with anymore would make another child’s day!

  • Spread the word to your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors anyone you can think of!

  • Use the #gearupforkids and post a picture of you donating and post it on our FB page and Instagram account, vinparks!

  • While dropping off your items, register for our drawing of 2 Rainbow Beach season Family Pool Passes!

  • Please make sure the equipment is in decent condition!
