The Bend Fire Department has put out a call for good, used sports equipment for our “Sister City” of Condega, Nicaragua.

 

Spokesman Mark Taylor says they are trying very hard to help out these kids that have practically nothing.

"Condega, like anywhere in the world, kids certainly have the desire and need to go out and play. The problem is when play requires sport equipment like it does for soccer and baseball and basketball, and you line in the second poorest country in the western hemisphere, going to ask mom to buy a soccer ball is something they just can't do."

 

Starting Tuesday donation boxes are set up in all Bend Fire Stations and City Hall to collect the equipment for soccer, baseball, basketball and track.

 

If you would rather give money; a check can be made out to the “Condega Bomberos project and taken to the fire department.  All donations are tax deductible.
