GEICO and Good Sports team up to provide sports equipment to Boys & Girls Club of Brockton

BROCKTON, Mass., April 9, 2013GEICO and Good Sports joined forces to support the Boys & Girls Club of Brockton by donating uniforms, basketballs, soccer balls, flag football gear and other sports equipment to the organization. Representatives from the three organizations and close to 200 students were on hand last Wednesday, April 3, to celebrate the partnership and try out the new equipment.

“This donation is going to encourage our members to play sports the right way,” said Josh Welper, program director with the Boys & Girls Club of Brockton. “These children come from backgrounds that do not have the resources to provide top-of-the-line equipment, and many of these kids will now be able to use brand new equipment for the first time. This equipment will grow their appreciation and excitement for the sport – and will also grow increase their sense of responsibility and self-worth. We look forward to using this donation as a mechanism to grow our sports program and impact even more youth in our community.”

The donation was part of an ongoing community partnership between GEICO and Good Sports that will help bring new equipment and resources to youth sports organizations in Massachusetts throughout 2013.
