What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Sports Gift has a goal of collecting and distributing in excess of 30,000 items of sports equipment to impoverished and disadvantaged children around the world each year. In order to accomplish this, we seek to engage over 150 volunteers each year to participate in our community service projects to collect sports equipment and volunteer at our warehouse to process the collections.

Our Knit With Love program seeks to collect and distribute in excess of 1,000 knit items each year to the homeless, cancer patients and impoverished and disadvantaged people around the world. To accomplish this, Knit With Love seeks to engage over 50 people each year to knit scarves, caps, blankets and other items.

Sports Gift seeks to continue to expand its brand and reputation around the United States, so that more people become aware of our community service programs. We maintain a very cost-effective strategy to rely on new media and technology to promote our programs.

Sports Gift possesses many key capabilities to achieve its goals including over 12 years of operating experience, a well developed program design and supporting materials for volunteers, strong Internet brand availability to prospective volunteers, and strong global distribution partnerships around the world.

Sports Gift seeks to measure our effectiveness using the following impact metrics:
1. Number of items of sports equipment collected
2. Number of volunteers participating in our community service programs
3. Estimated number of impoverished children benefiting from our distribution.
Our Knit With Love using similar impact metrics:
1. Number of knit items collected
2. Number of volunteers participating

Sports Gift has collected over 300,000 items of sports equipment since our inception and had thousands of volunteers participating in our community service programs. We estimate that over 400,000 impoverished children have been benefited by our programs and been able to enjoy youth programs thanks to Sports Gift and our many volunteers.
