Sports4Success

Connecting those in need with those who can help is our mission and our newest program, Sports 4 Success embraces that mission 100%. Along with our partners at the University of Miami Sports Medicine Institute, our goal is to help kids recover their game.  With your help we can provide youth programs in our community the sports gear they need.  We are working with fantastic groups in our area that inspire youth development through sports programs.  With the right tools sports can open up opportunities.  From fitness to positive engagement, these programs are crucial to self-confidence and teamwork. Limited financial resources mean many programs don’t have enough equipment for all the kids wanting to play. 

Your donation of gently used or new sports equipment is needed.  
From rackets to baskets, balls to cleats, our kids need you to help them get in the game. 

With the help of our partners at the Motivational Edge, we have identified these programs and complied a wish list right here.  
You’ll see the name and description of the program, location, contact information, and what they need.  
If they have a website, there will be a link.  Most of these organizations are not able to pick up your donation, but you can reach out and ask.  

If you have a large donation that needs facilitation, please contact us at Neighbors 4 Neighbors. 
Email: Lynne@neighbors4neighbors.org or Katy@neighbors4neighbors.org  
Feel free to call our office as well at 305-597-4404

If you know of a program in need of supplies or equipment, please share this link to our survey so we can add them as well.

THANK YOU
