Do you have a old pair of cleats or a new mouth guard you never got around to using sitting in the back of your closet? Just bought a new pair of knee socks that don’t fit? Don’t know what to do with them? Donate your used cleats to Mount Holyoke College Women’s Rugby Equipment Collection!
In our efforts to be inclusive of all students, regardless of their financial situation, theMount Holyoke Rugby team is starting an equipment collection! We have made it our goal as a program to not let someone’s financial limitations prevent them from playing rugby; traditionally, that has meant working out alternative payment plans with players who are having trouble paying their dues. However, the need is still great. We want to ensure that no one misses out on being a part of the rugby family simply because they do not have the necessary equipment.
Rugby should be accessible to all players regardless of financial situations, however due to financial limitations players often cannot receive the equipment needed to participate.
You can help MHC Rugby by donating:
- Your new or gently used cleats
- A new or gently used pair of knee-high socks (white, light blue, or navy blue)
- A new mouth guard
- New or gently used rugby shorts
- New or gently used rugby balls
Don’t have equipment collecting dust in your closet? Still want to donate? Donations of any shape or size are greatly appreciated and financial donations can make a huge difference for players.
- $5 can buy one player a rugby shirt
- $10 buys a brand new mouth guard
- $20 pays for one player’s dues
- $40-50 can buy a pair of new cleats
- $50 can buy a new box of med tape
To donate equipment, or if you have any questions, email Hannah Summerfield-Gonchar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
