Updates on our Ball-Bin campaign
Following the launch of our Ball-Bin campaign 2 weeks ago, Victory Sports installed three more Ball-Bins this week in Erie County. Working in partnership with local town & rec. departments, we installed 2 Ball-Bins in the Town of Tonawanda on Tuesday and visited Griffith Street in Sloan on Wednesday to place another equipment distribution in a community playground.
Victory Sports is returning for a second summer with our Ball-Bin initiative that sees equipment distribution bins installed in communities across WNY. Each bin is stocked full of soccer balls, basketballs, footballs, playground balls and jump-ropes which kids can take and keep to play with. We’ll restock the bins every week so we can reach as many kids as possible during a summer that will be lacking in most of the regular opportunities for kids to play sport and be active. Many families are feeling the economic hardship of the pandemic so providing some free sports equipment to kids is just one way we are trying to help keep them active!
Check out the list of Ball-Bins in place and view on Google Maps via each link:
- West Seneca – Centennial Park
- Town of Tonawanda – Mang Park Cultural Building
- Town of Tonawanda – Lincoln Park
- Sloan – 50 Griffith Street, 14212
We will install 20 bins across WNY ASAP this summer so keep an eye on our website and Facebook for updates on new installations in a town near you, with the following locations coming very soon:
- Niagara Falls
Installing and restocking these Ball-Bins is made possible by the generous support from Ralph C. Wilson Jr Foundation and individual donors to Victory Sports. The Ball-Bins will be centrally located within each community and will be regularly visited by users and by Victory Sports in our big blue van, attracting lots of attention!
We’re now inviting local businesses and community figures to consider adopting one of our Ball-Bins. In doing so, you help us restock your Ball-Bin every week so that kids aren’t disappointed to find an empty bin! We can provide great social media coverage at the launch and every week when we restock, plus you’ll have your logo and company name on the signage and, most importantly, you’ll be helping the kids in your community! Check out the flyer below.
If you or your organization is interested in demonstrating your commitment to your local community by adopting one of our Ball-Bins, please do get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
