Area families are asked to donate any new or good, used baseball and softball equipment for the “Cardboard to Leather” program. The equipment will be delivered to boys in girls who want to learn to “play ball” in countries such as Nicaragua, Haiti, and Venezuela.
All equipment is needed: bats, batting gloves, baseballs and softballs, gloves, cleats, uniform hats, shirts, pants and socks, catcher’s and umpire’s gear, bases and any teaching aids.
Donations can be dropped off at the Unionville High School Gymnasium Lobby, Patton Middle School Lobby and Chadds Ford and Hillendale Elementary Schools through the end of March. A collection box will be at the March 12 UHS Baseball Clinic and the UHS Girls’ Softball Clinic on March 26. Donations also may be made during “Opening Day” ceremonies and games at URA and KAU.

The Cardboard to Leather program is sponsored by the [Baltimore] Oriole Advocates, an organization of volunteers joined together to promote and stimulate an interest in baseball at all levels, among youths of all ages, all over the world.
