Organize a Collection Drive and/or Collection Site
Donations are the foundation of our program. We cannot develop the game of baseball in 3rd World communities in need without YOU.
Your support makes all the difference in our ability to give a young boy or girl the chance to play baseball and families to come together to build and develop a strong sense of community. Each and every volunteer, whether an individual or part of a group, team or organization is the life-line to fulfillling our mission.
Every contribution is important here at Roberto's Kids whether it is 1 box or 1,000 boxes. Companies, retailers, organizations and individuals across the United States and Canada are collecting baseball equipment and shipping directly to us.
We do not have the resources to assist with cost of shipping donations to our facilities. We ask that donors assume the responsibility for transporting their collected donations to one of our collection hubs or storage locations.
We have the necessary partnerships in place to ensure the delivery of collected donations, at our facilities, arrive at their final destinations.
Suggested options for volunteers to cover their cost of shipping:
Raise the funds for shipping right in your community.
Contact local businesses and organizations in your community to sponsor your project by paying for the shipping.
Connect with local shipping companies and invite them to be a part of your project by donating the freight.
Ask donors to include $1 to assist you in your shipping costs.
We do not have an agreement with shipping companies for freight discounts. You may contact FedEx, UPS or any freight and shipping companies for a quote in your area. Use the most economical cost option for your project.
Host a Community Fundraiser Dinner
You don't have to play baseball to be a part of our organization! Organize a community dinner in your local community to benefit Roberto's Kids. Encourage your dinner guests to bring their used and gently worn equipment to you.
Contact us and ask for Presentations that you can have to share with your dinner guests so they learn about the work you are doing and the impact they will be a part of.
100% of all cash donations are used for international shipping and storage fees.
