Sport Equipment Collection for the Trotter School

  • Tuesday, November 30 - Friday, December 10
  • All Day Event

This drive is being organized by temple members Hayden Krause, Harrison Rand, and Asher Seidman. Hayden, Harrison, and Asher are 13-year-olds who feel very strongly about tikkun olam and their responsibility as teenagers to help make the world a better place for the future.

Help collect sports, gym and recess equipment for the Trotter School. The Trotter School is an urban magnet school in Dorchester that provides high-quality education and amazing opportunities to students from the inner city. These items can be brand new or gently used and may be dropped off in a bin outside the front entrance of TBE.

Gym Equipment: footballs, dodge balls/kick balls (soft rubber balls), long jump ropes, middle school-age jump ropes, medicine balls (all sizes), mini basketballs, tug-of-war rope, push-up handles, hula hoops, agility ladder, elastic bands, baseball gloves. No soccer balls, hockey sticks, or nets.

Indoor Recess Games: Twister, Chess, Checkers, Backgammon, Battleship, Sorry, Candyland, Chutes and Ladders, Uno, Memory card games (Spot-it, etc.)

We are also collecting tax-deductible online donations to TBE’s Racial Justice Initiative (RJI) Fund, to be used towards the purchase of a 10-foot portable basketball hoop for The Trotter School. Click here to donate, note that the gift is made “In honor of Trotter Sports Equipment.” You may also contribute by sending a check payable to “TBE-RJI” and write “Trotter Sports Equipment” in the memo line.
