Used Sports Equipment Donation Drive

On Sunday, September 16th; Wednesday, September 19th; and Sunday, September 23rd, we are encouraging everyone to donate their used sports gear. You can donate the equipment by simply bring it to church and placing it in the bin inside the lobby at the Ridge

Thanks for supporting our cause and thinking of the children!

The Christian Sports Alliance believes God will use any tool possible to reach into the lives of less fortunate children and their families. For CSA, sports and athletics are that very tools. We believe that by introducing a child to Jesus Christ through their athletic endeavors we are setting that child up for something far greater than just a “win” on a scoreboard. Through the efforts of many, and through the implementation of an organized sports ministry, we believe we have an opportunity to set them up for a “victory” in life. And we need your help. CSA happily accepts financial donations and those of used sports equipment. If it revolves around the sports world and can be safely re-purposed and re-used we will find a good home for it.

For additional information about CSA and the many ways you can help us help the kids, please visit us on the web at www.christiansportsalliance.com …. or contact Todd Fox at todd@play4csa.com or (706) 374-6768.
