NYS Assemblyman Durso, Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Saladino and Massapequa Park Mayor Pearl To Hold A Drive-Thru Sports Equipment Collection Drive in Massapequa

***Media & Public Advisory***For May 7, 2023

Assemblyman Michael Durso, alongside Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Village of Massapequa Park Mayor Daniel Pearl, is holding a drive-thru sports equipment collection drive on Sunday, May 7, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Massapequa High School – west side parking lot. Drivers are to enter the school’s west driveway from the Merrick Road entrance, drive through, drop off donations, and exit out the back.

Assemblyman Durso is asking community members and organizations to kindly donate new or gently used sporting equipment to benefit local youth athletes. All items collected will be distributed by Pronto of Long Island, which provides a multitude of services to families in need throughout Long Island. 

“If you’re looking to get rid of sports equipment you and your family no longer use, we ask that you donate it to underserved kids who will put it to good use to get in the game,” said Assemblyman Durso. “It’s a home run…you cleared out your garage and played it forward!”

“This drive-thru collection event provides a win-win opportunity for our residents to clean out their unused equipment and feel like a champion for our young athletes,” said Supervisor Saladino. “Your sporting goods could make all the difference in the life of a young athlete who might not otherwise have the chance to participate in a sport they love.”

“As a father of three boys who all play sports, I know how important it is for children to have the opportunity to participate in our sports programs. Thanks to this program, children and their families in need will have access to sports equipment to help remove any barriers for our young athletes,” said Mayor Pearl. 

If you have any questions about this event or a state-related matter, please free feel to call Assemblyman Durso’s office at 516-541-4598.
