Equipment Drive for CubaCan Kids

The U21 Canadian Women’s Baseball Team is organizing an equipment drive to support Cubacan, a charity that provides used sports equipment to children in Cuba.

They will be collecting this equipment in the north Frank Ryan park baseball diamond 950 Alpine Ave, Ottawa, ON K2B 5R9 (closest to the road) and will be there on Saturday, May 11 from 12:00-3:30 PM to receive it.

Practice and the game at the RA this week is cancelled but Saturday practice is a go so Buds can bring any gear they would like to donate the the drive themselves before our practice Saturday ideally. If that can’t be done bring it to the practice and try to figure out a way to get it there.

This is a great opportunity to help a great charity providing equipment to kids in a country that loves the game of baseball! That said any sports equipment of any kind is welcomed and appreciated.

Anyone who donates let us know and we’ll be sure to mark it as a contribution towards our year end party for softball.

A bat, a ball, a glove, a pair of cleats, a basketball, soccer ball, etc. would make a Cuban kid really happy! See what you can find in your basement or garage while you’re doing spring cleaning!
