Here's another reason to love Greensboro. Tyler's Locker, a newly founded non-profit, has started collecting used sports equipment so that disadvantaged Greensboro youth can get into the game.
Tyler's Locker was founded by Greensboro Police Captain John Wolfe and his son, Tyler, and has gained the support of Ricky Proehl, former NFL player, Greensboro Parks and Rec and Omega Sports. Used sports equipment is being collected and then distributed to those throughout Greensboro who can't afford the expensive equipment that is sometimes required to participate in sports. In addition to collecting used equipment, Tyler's Locker accepts monetary donations to provide scholarships to those who are unable to afford the costs of joining in organized sports.
This is a great time to clean out your garage and donate sports equipment that is no longer being used or that your children have outgrown. Taylor's Locker is having its Kickoff Event this Saturday, January 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Drop by the Omega Sports at 2431 Battleground Avenune, Greensboro and help children and teens throughout Greensboro.
