Thompson’s Sport Shop is collecting used baseball equipment for Give One Glove.
Give One Glove is a Savannah-based nonprofit that collects donated baseball equipment to give to children in need, mostly in the Dominican Republic.
Give One Glove donates equipment in the Dominican Republic, in Savannah and in cities like Atlanta, Nashville and Miami. The main need in the Dominican Republic is for gloves, balls and catcher’s equipment. The nonprofit sometimes sells donated equipment to purchase more gloves or may recycle donated aluminum bats and use that money to buy more gloves and baseballs at stores like Play it Again Sports. Only wooden bats will go to the Dominican Republic.
