Home Run Heroes’ baseball gear collection is Dec. 16

LINCOLN – Home Run Heroes will be holding its 8th annual collection drive for new and lightly used baseball gear on Saturday, Dec. 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 3 Westwood Road in Lincoln.

The program, which has been run since 2013 by Lincoln High graduate Derek Degnan, works in conjunction with Roberto’s Kids, which collects and distributes baseball gear to children in all parts of the world.

Last year, the program collected and delivered over 600 pounds of gear for distribution to the Caribbean, Central America, and South America.

All usable gear is accepted, as well as baseball caps, shirts, and pants that are not stained or torn. If you wish to donate, but cannot make it on Dec. 16, call 401-578-8318 or email wdegnan40@gmail.com and arrangements will be made to pick up the donation.
