A mother of young athletes has developed a sports equipment donation program.
Julia Ross said her two youngest children, ages 9 and 14, have been involved in basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball and soccer for several years.
She said the idea for the Clark County Equipment Exchange Program came about a few years ago when she and other family members were cleaning out the garage and getting ready to take a load to Goodwill.
“I started wondering about how we could better reuse the old, outgrown sports equipment we were collecting,” Ross said. “I wrote up a plan, but I was not able to act on it as I was working full time then. This summer while not working, I revisited the idea and just went for it.”
