Senator Singleton, Malamut Law, Philadelphia Union Collecting Used Sports Gear and Equipment for Children in Need

(MOORESTOWN) – In an effort to expand equity within youth sports, New Jersey State Senator Troy Singleton will be holding a “Gear for Good” donation drive for children in need.

“When all kids have the opportunity to participate in sports, it strengthens the community as a whole,” said Singleton. “Ensuring that kids from all socioeconomic backgrounds have access to sports is not just about fairness—it’s about promoting health, well-being, and positive development for all children.”

In partnership with the nonprofit Leveling the Playing Field, Inc., Malamut Law, and the Philadelphia Union, Singleton is collecting gently used sports gear and equipment through June 12th. There is a collection bin in the lobby of his office located at 400 North Church St. Suite 260 in Moorestown. The office is open Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM. Donations can also be dropped off at Malamut Law’s Cherry Hill Office and the Philadelphia Union Stadium.

Adam Malamut, Managing Partner, Malamut Law, added, “Malamut Law is proud to partner with Senator Singleton for this community service initiative. By redistributing our unwanted sports equipment, we can make a tangible difference in the life of a child who otherwise might not have had the opportunity to play in an organized sport.”

Leveling the Playing Field accepts new and gently used sporting equipment donations to directly redistribute to expand access and equity within youth sports and recreation programs in under-resourced communities in the Philadelphia region including South Jersey.

LPF is accepting all types of donations for sports, including but not limited to:

  • Baseball/Softball – bats, bags, bases, baseballs, cleats, gloves, helmets, pants
  • Basketball – basketballs, hoops, shorts
  • Field Hockey – balls, goggles, gloves, goalie gear, sticks

  • Racquet Sports – nets, tennis balls, badminton sets, pickleball sets, squash sets

In addition to this collection, Senator Singleton also has introduced legislation to address sports equity in our state. Senate Bill 2860 establishes the Sports Equipment Equity Pilot Program. Under the program, grants will be awarded to school districts to help enhance school athletic programs by providing students with sports equipment and other related resources to participate in sports and physical activities in schools.
