Jordan’s Furniture Launches the 2019 Double Play Youth Baseball Donation Program

Baseball equipment for inner-city youth in partnership with the Red Sox Foundation

Taunton, MA – There may be a chill in the air but it’s time to think baseball! Specifically youth baseball. Jordan’s Furniture is proud to announce the launch of their 2019 Double Play Youth Baseball Donation Program, a project that will supply like-new baseball/softball equipment to inner-city youth for the upcoming season. In partnership with the Red Sox Foundation’s Reviving Baseball In Inner Cities (RBI) Program, equipment will be distributed to over 2,000 inner-city youth.

Starting today and running through March 31, equipment donations can be dropped off at any Jordan’s Furniture location in MA, RI, or NH, including their Taunton Distribution Center. All donations must be in like-new, clean condition. Equipment includes bats (metal only), catcher’s equipment, gloves, cleats (metal and plastic), baseballs (new), and softballs (new).

“This is the ninth year that we are running our youth baseball donation program because we have seen in past seasons that the equipment gets directly in the hands of kids who need it. And the need does not end,” said Eliot Tatelman, President of Jordan’s Furniture.  “In this day and age of pay-to-play, there are thousands of kids that just cannot afford to play sports. We are excited to, again, team up with the Red Sox Foundation…the perfect partner!”

The equipment collection that Jordan’s Furniture organizes each year plays such a big role in our youth baseball and softball programs,” said Red Sox Foundation Executive Director Bekah Salwasser. “Last season, the donations were so generous that not only did we supply hundreds of children in our RBI Program with baseball and softball equipment, we even had enough to distribute to other programs throughout New England. The generosity of those who donate is truly incredible, and we thank Jordan’s for their commitment to the community and for being such a terrific partner.”

The 2019 Double Play Youth Baseball Donation Program runs through March 31. All information can be found online at www.jordans.com.
