Leveling the Playing Field Equipment Drive, Nourish Now Food Drive & A Wider Circle Drive
On Saturday, October 15, 2016 Leveling the Playing Field and SAM Soccer will be partnering to host an equipment drive. Any gently used sports equipment (doesn't just have to be soccer) will be accepted.
Leveling the Playing Field is also partnering with Nourish Now and a Wider Circle that day as well. We will have a collection set up for food items (Nourish Now) and household items, including furniture (A Wider Circle).
Drop off locations will be at the turf fields (fields 18-20) and in front of the Discovery Sports Center.
Fall Manna Food Drive
Saturday, November 5 and Sunday, November 6
Manna Food Center will be dropping off their big blue bins and truck Friday, November 4. One bin will be located in front of the Discovery Sports Center and the others (with the truck) will be placed up at turf. A Manna Food Center rep will stop by Saturday and Sunday night to gather all the collected food for the day and lock it up in the truck. They will either pick up the truck on Sunday night or Monday during the day.
One Warm Coat Drive
November, 2016 - March, 2017
We are kicking off the One Warm Coat Drive for the 5th consecutive year. We will be donating gently used coats/jackets (winter clothing) to Interfaith Works, which is a non-profit company based in Rockville and services about 4500 families a year. Over the years, we have collected over 800 coats/jackets to help those less fortunate. Let’s continue the good work and help keep our communities warm!
The bins are located in the main lobby of the DSC and are labeled “Men, Women, Kids”.
Toys for Tots
November, 2016 - December 15, 2016
In addition, we will be collecting new unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots campaign again this year. The collection boxes will also be located in the main lobby. Last year we collected 3 full boxes, and I’m hoping to fill 5 this time around.
