CHICO, Calif. - Hundreds of children affected by the Camp Fire were given free baseball and softball gear Saturday and Sunday.
Kids ages 4 to 17, went to Chico Junior High School on Memorial Way in Chico.
Inside the gym, organizers had gloves, helmets and bats ready to be picked up.
Two friends who work for California District 47 Little League made a call on social media asking for donations.
Within a few days, numerous people wanted to donate including Dick's Sporting Goods, Chase Pro and Dave Taylor, a coach from Chico State.
Claudia Valle, the outgoing California District 47 Little League administrator says she hopes all these gifts for the children make them feel supported.
“Hopefully that they understand that people care for them and are wanting to do good things for them. With that said so many people wanted to do something, kids included. I mean donating some of their gear that they don’t use anymore is important to them,” Valle said.
The district also received donations from as far away as Tennessee.
