(Philadelphia) Wings Charities operate under 3 main pillars: grow the game of lacrosse, supporting families affected by cancer, and sustainability. Partnering with Inspira Health, Wings Charities created the Sticks for Students program. This initiative will aim to improve the health and vitality of youth by creating safe and convenient sports opportunities for all. The Sticks for Students program will equip schools/recreational league partners with proper tools and resources to develop a robust lacrosse curriculum, including instructional videos and various sports equipment for student use. Through the program, students will improve their physical health, develop character and life skills, and gain academic performance benefits. Last year a major donation was made to the School District of Philadelphia where Wings Charities and the district are currently working to distribute brand new equipment to underserved schools through the district. Just recently, Wings Charities announced a focus on South Jersey (Cumberland County). To further introduce and grow the sport of lacrosse, as part of the program, Wings players and Wings mascot Wingston, will visit each of the recreational league partners and host interactive assembly programs for students. Additionally, each location will receive tickets and transportation to a Wings game as an incentive for students to commit to healthy habits and practice lacrosse.

Leveling the Playing Field's mission is simple ... help put more kids on the playing field! Their program enables organizations to save thousands of dollars in equipment costs, letting them lower registration fees and making it possible for more kids involved in the game. Their program has the opportunity to help local students experience a childhood full of positive youth sports memories and take advantage of the physical and mental benefits youth sports have to offer. Get kids off the sidelines by donating new or gentle used sports equipment (or a financial donation)! Now, LPF Greater Philadelphia is well on its way to distribute $1M of gear to 250+ schools and programs annually.
