Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with nearly 2.7 million players and one million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and scores of other countries.
At Roberto's Kids, their global reach and leadership bridges the gap between different cultures through baseball. Their organization partners with communities as they develop and nurture social responsibility.
They achieve that through the collection and distribution of new and gently worn baseball equipment. They work with baseball leagues, charitable organizations, individuals and retailers in the United States, Canada and Latin American countries and AIAA is one of them.
We have already sent one shipment over 200 lbs.! We will be preparing a donation of gently used baseball & softball equipment in the near future. If you are looking to purge some of your child's equipment or uniforms to make room in your house please email Dave Calarco at:
This is a great opportunity to give back to the baseball community.
They have sent us a thank you letter for our first shipment. You may see that letter by clicking here.
