Got any old Equipment?



The Falmouth Volunteers In Public Schools (VIPS) program is seeking donations of gently-used sports equipment for its 2nd Annual Sports Fair fundraiser, to be held Saturday, March 13th at the Gus Canty Recreation Center. Proceeds from the fundraiser will support the VIPS’ school-based mentoring programs as well as a pilot sports-themed mentoring program for students in grades 5-8. Thanks to Sports Fair sponsors Total Orthopedic Care, The Clam Man, Balanced Health & Fitness, all proceeds from the fair will directly benefit the school-based mentoring programs. These programs currently serve 100 students, though several students are waiting for a mentor.

Sports equipment donations will be accepted from now until March 10th. Donation boxes are located in school lobbies and at the VIPS office. VIPS is located at the back of the Lawrence School, 113 Lakeview Avenue, Falmouth. Donors are asked to drive to the rear of the school, off Dillingham Avenue, and look for the VIPS office, door #8 (VIPS office cannot be accessed through the main entrance to the school). Office hours are Monday through Friday, between 9:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
