Auburn Fastpitch Softball, which is the dedicated girls youth softball league in town since 1976, will be holding a clothes drive and toy drive for those in need on Saturday, December 6 from 9 am to 2 pm at the Auburn Fire Station on Auburn Street.

Donations of unwrapped new toys are welcome. All toys will be donated to Auburn Youth & Family Services which will distribute them to families in the community for Christmas.

At the same time as the Toy Drive, Auburn Fastpitch Softball will be collecting used clothes to raise charitable funds for the league to help pay for equipment, lower costs for all families and provide scholarships for girls to play softball whose families may have a hard time paying. Donating clothes to be recycled and reused in some fashion also helps the environment. Clothes that are donated will be brought to Cash4Clothes which donates to non-profits for clothing collected to be recycled and reused.

Clothes simply can be gathered in a bag and brought down to the Auburn Fire Station parking lot. Clothes may be donated in any condition. Instead of throwing out in the trash old unusable clothes, rags, or towels please donate them on December 6. Even clothing and fabrics that are no longer usable will be recycled instead of being thrown in the trash. It is an environmentally better solution to donate them.

On Saturday, December 6 at the Auburn Fire Station from 9 am to 2 pm, people who are willing to donate clothes or toys can make a difference for children in need in town, help a non-profit softball league to provide opportunities for Auburn girls to play and learn softball, and save the environment all at once. League volunteers will be collecting the donations of clothes and or toys.

For more information about making a donation of clothes and or toys please email the League President Chris Diguette at chris.diguette @auburnfastpitch.com. Other arrangements may be made to make donations for these efforts if someone cannot drop by on December 6. You can visit Auburn Fastpitch Softball at
