The Peaks Society kicked off its inaugural Sports Equipment Drive on May 27 by collecting items at McCormick Field. Thanks to the Asheville Braves baseball and softball teams, UNC Asheville Bulldogs and other Asheville Tourists fans, the drive is off to a fantastic start. We collected 17 bags of bats, balls, cleats, helmets and more. An added bonus: the Tourists beat the Lexington Legends with a 10-9 walk-off win in the bottom of the ninth.
The Sports Equipment Drive runs through June 10. You can drop off new or gently used items at our office on 50 South French Broad Avenue in downtown Asheville or one of the community drop off sites listed below. You can also shop for items on our Amazon wish list or make a donation online.
