Lax Equipment Donation

Lax the Nations

Dear Manheim Township Family,

For those who don't know me, my name is Grayson Sallade. I am a Junior, and play both football and lacrosse for Manheim Township.

While recently cleaning out my closet, I found of a lot of unused but still good lacrosse equipment, and wanted to provide this equipment to those less fortunate than ourselves. I began researching organizations that would be able to use the equipment to help spread the game, and shortly thereafter I learned about a service trip that MTHS is taking to South America later this spring. After getting confirmation and permission from the school, I decided to take on this project.

Beginning immediately, I will be collecting any new or slightly used lacrosse equipment, as well as American Footballs, to send along with our fellow MTHS students going to Nicaragua in April. The kids’ ages vary from 5-13 years old. I have contacted students going on the trip and they have agreed to help teach the kids the basics of lacrosse while they are there, so the gear will get immediate use. Our gear will hopefully continue to build upon recent efforts by "Lacrosse the Nations," with MLL Pros Scott Ratliff and Adam Ghitelman having just returned from Nicaragua on a similar outreach trip.

In addition to the lacrosse equipment, they would like everything to travel in suitcases that will also be donated to the kids. If anyone has any extra suitcases around please donate those as well! Each suitcase will have a shipping rate of about $25 so cash or a check payable to ‘Manheim Township High School’ would be greatly appreciated.

Below is a list of things that can be donated:

  • Shafts
  • Heads (Strung with Mesh)
  • Fiddle-Sticks
  • Gloves
  • Helmets
  • Balls
  • Any Size American Football
  • Suitcase (LARGE, No Duffel Bags)
  • Money to offset the shipping rate of the suitcases/equipment

There will be 3 locations to drop off donations.

  1. My House - 2960 Weaver Rd. Lancaster, Pa 17601
  2. MTHS Main Office - There will be a large cardboard box in main office next to the secretaries.
  3. Lanco Fieldhouse - Before or after our practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Please remember that all donations should be SLIGHTLY used... Please do not send broken/unusable equipment!

If you have any questions or suggestions please do not hesitate to contact me by phone (717-824-6067) or email ( )

Thank you!
