Play it Forward Project Aims to Give All Children a Chance to Play Sports

Posted: Updated:

Members of the University of Nebraska Student Government are developing a community service project called Play It Forward on the UNK campus and Kearney community which will kick off Wednesday, February 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Loper basketball game.

Members of Student Government will be collecting used sporting equipment starting Feb. 27 and accepting goods until the end of the school year. The sporting equipment will be donated to the local Special Olympics. Cash donations are also accepted.

Bins will be set up throughout campus in the Nebraskan Student Union, Cushing Coliseum, and West Center where any equipment or apparel can be deposited. Cash donations can be dropped off at the Welcome Desk in the Nebraskan Student Union or mailed to:

ATTN: Office of Student Life
1013 West 27th St.
Kearney, NE 68849

The Play It Forward organization began in Texas by a group of students who decided they wanted to give back to their local community. Donations are used to ensure every child has an opportunity to play sports, even if they are unable to afford equipment. The UNK campus will be the first collegiate campus to participate in this community service event.
