Do you have old soccer gear at home? If so, you can donate soccer gear. You can even donate soccer equipment, like training equipment. By donating soccer gear, you can get it to kids that may not have any soccer gear. Or that may be playing with outdated gear, or even gear that is old and no longer good.

Soccer gear can be donated locally, nationally and even internationally.

The first thing you need to do to donate soccer gear is to know what types of things can be donated. Soccer gear that you can donate includes:

  • Soccer shoes
  • Soccer balls
  • Soccer jerseys and shorts
  • Soccer socks
  • Goalie gloves and jerseys
  • Ball bags
  • Duffle bags
  • Training equipment
  • and more!

You need to find a place to make your soccer gear donation. Not all charities accept soccer gear donations. And you want to make sure that you are making your donation to a place that can really use your soccer equipment donation.

Start out on the Passback website from the U.S. Soccer Foundation. You can use that webpage to find organizations in your local area that take soccer gear donations.

Other places where you can make a soccer gear donation include Peace Passers and the Soccer Donation Project.

Before you make your soccer gear donation, check out your gear to make sure it’s clean and in good shape. With soccer balls, make sure that they hold air.
