Atascadero wants kids’ old sports gear

Outgrown soccer cleats and abandoned baseball gloves can have a new life with the city of Atascadero’s latest donation program.

The new Sports Spot program welcomes donations of new and used sports gear for child athletes so local families needing such items can take what they require.

Drop-off and pickup times are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays at the Colony Park Community Center, 5599 Traffic Way. For information, call 470-3360.
