Step 2: Poster and Social Media
Hang up our flyer in your community and post it on social media! You can also send out an email or text blast telling the world what you’re doing as a Game Changers NY volunteer. Tell your friends and family to follow us on social media so everyone can see the amazing work that you’re doing.

Step 3. Set up Bins
Set up bins in the local community center, schools, houses of worship, and sports centers so people can drop off their new and lightly used sports equipment.

Gather all of the sports equipment that you have collected. Throw away the equipment that is in bad condition and sort and count the equipment that’s in good condition. Please make a specific list of items that you have collected so we can tell our partner organizations exactly what you have collected for them.
