Leveling the Playing Field (LPF) is a nonprofit organization that gives children from under-resourced communities the opportunity to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of youth sports participation. LPF does this through the collection of used/excess sports equipment from schools, manufacturers, individual families, and others. After being inventoried and sorted at the LPF warehouse, the equipment is then redistributed to a school, sports league, or other organization serving a low-income community and placed into the hands of a child who cannot afford their own equipment.
