Neighborhood Place of Puna is now distributing new and gently used youth sports equipment to East Hawaii children and youth who want to play sports but cannot afford to buy the necessary equipment.
Neighborhood Place of Puna believes that every child deserves the right to play team sports. Our Sports Rescue program takes donations of gently used unwanted or outgrown sports equipment and gives it to East Hawaii children and youth who need help getting the equipment necessary to play sports.
If your child wants to play sports and needs help finding equipment, please call Neighborhood Place of Puna at 965-5550, to find out if we have the sports equipment that you need.
Neighborhood Place of Puna is also still accepting donations of new and gently used sports equipment. Donations can be dropped off at our Pahoa office, 15-3039 Pahoa Village Rd, during business hours: 8:00am-4:30pm, Monday – Friday. Or call 965-5550 to arrange to drop off donations in Hilo.
This program is made possible through a grant from Omidyar ‘Ohana Fund of the Hawai’i Community Foundation.
Neighborhood Place of Puna (NPP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to help families raise healthy safe keiki by providing families with the tools and supports they need to be successful.
