What’s Happening In Our Communities.

(send your pdf format flyers for posting here)
Making Play Possible is hosting the 2nd annual “Previously-Loved Recreation Equipment Sale and BBQ”, August 9th from 9 AM – 4 PM at the Brockville Memorial Centre.
Donations of all kinds of gently-used recreation equipment are being accepted NOW: anything related to sporting, musical, or artistic recreational activities!  Hockey equipment, skates, figure skating/ gymnastics/ dance costumes and shoes, sheet music, cleats, protective gear, and baseball gloves are all high-demand items; but if it can be used by someone to participate in a recreational activity, then we will take it!
Making Play Possible supports local families to help increase access to recreation for children and youth in Leeds-Grenville. The sale helps to make activities accessible to families by cutting down on the cost of equipment. All of the proceeds of the event go back into our community to fund registration fees, equipment costs, and transportation for kids participating in recreation.
Please consider donating some equipment to our sale, or stop by on the day-of to find gently-used items for your kids’ activities this coming year!

Making Play Possible asks that all equipment donations be dropped off to one of the locations listed below before August 7th:

  •          Brockville Canadian Tire
  •         Prescott Canadian Tire
  •         Brockville Public Library
  •         Athens Public Library
  •         Prescott Public Library
  •         The Co-operators Insurance (7748 Kent Blvd, Unit #3, Brockville)
  •         Children’s Mental Health of Leeds-Grenville (779 Chelsea Street, Brockville)
