VOLUNTEER WITH THE SPORTS SHED

Help us gear up kids for a better future! We have volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, school groups and corporate teams. Sign up for a collection project, to join a board, or attend an event.

Host a Gift Drive

Be a part of equipping kids for a better future by hosting a gift drive for The Sports Shed. Collect new or gently used equipment donations, do a virtual gift drive or a combination of both. Give kids from marginalized communities the chance to participate in competitive sports!

Celebration: Are you hosting a birthday party or a Bar/Bat Mitzvah? Let your friends and family celebrate you by giving to a cause that you are passionate about.

Volunteer Hours: Need to complete volunteer hours for school or an Eagle Scout project? Let us work with you to create a project that will make a impact.

Corporate Volunteering: Looking to give back to the community? Host a gift drive with your colleagues.
