SOMERS, N.Y. – Dick’s Sporting Goods in Yorktown has donated more than $2,000 in sports equipment to the Somers Youth Sports Organization baseball program.
The sporting goods store donated the brand new equipment, including catcher’s masks, hitting tees and netting, months after SYSO Baseball board member Michael Aquilino applied through Dick’s’ website.
“I submitted all that months back and they reached out to me,” Aquilino said. “I told them our needs and what we’re looking to do.”
The store also made a $500 cash donation to help a few Somers baseball teams visit the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. Dick’s also provided a 20 percent discount coupon that local families can use at Dick’s on March 25 and 26. The sporting goods store is located in the Jefferson Valley Mall, 650 Lee Blvd.
