Son of a Saint collects sports equipment for kids




It’s time to clean out your garage/attic/closets/nooks and crannies and donate youth sports equipment you no longer use to REPLAY, the Son of a Saint Sports Foundation recycling program for youth sports equipment. Son of a Saint, which helps boys 9-13 who have no father in the home participate in organized sports, is collecting new and used sports equipment and has partnered with area groups to make drop-off easy.

Donated equipment will go to Son of a Saint, New Orleans Recreation Development Commission and New Orleans Kids Partnership.
