Shrewsbury – The Shrewsbury High School (SHS) Colonials will hold their second annual Colonials’ Athletic & Recreation Equipment (C.A.R.E.) Drive Saturday, March 25, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., at the gym entrance of the school, 64 Holden St. The first 200 people to donate will receive coupons for discounts off of new equipment courtesy of Dick’s Sporting Goods.

The C.A.R.E. Drive is looking for donations of any new or gently used sports or recreation equipment. They will accept most equipment, such as basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, lacrosse sticks, hockey sticks, bats, gloves, cleats, Frisbees, jump ropes and playground balls. Oversized items such as bicycles, clothing, or broken equipment will not be accepted.

SHS athletes will distribute the equipment at an elementary or middle school in need while discussing the importance of staying physically active and having some fun with the kids. Last year’s C.A.R.E. Drive collected and distributed over 500 pieces of equipment.

For updates on the C.A.R.E. Drive, follow @SHSCARE on Twitter.
