Fans can donate equipment to Fields of Growth Saturday night when Princeton men host Cornell in Ivy League game

If you have a youth lacrosse player, then you probably have a garage cluttered with old lacrosse equipment.

To make some space for the next round of clutter, bring the old equipment to Princeton University Saturday evening (7 p.m.) in a win-win-win situation.

First, you’ll be rid of the old stuff.

Second, you can see Princeton and Cornell play for the right to host the Ivy League tournament.

And third, you can help Princeton lacrosse and Fields Of Growth in their continued support of the national lacrosse program – not to mention several educational ventures – in Uganda.

Chad Wiedmaier, Princeton’s All-America defenseman, spent a month last summer in Uganda as part of the Fields of Growth project, which is using the sport of lacrosse as an educational and cultural tool in the country.

In addition to any old lacrosse eqipment, donations of clothing will be accepted as well. There will be boxes provided by Fields of Growth between the parking lots and the ticket window at Sherrerd Field at Class of 1952 Stadium where the equipment and clothes can be deposited.

College gear news: Ursinus (Pa.) flashes shirts while honoring ‘We Are One 365’ in preparation for game Saturday

From Press Release

The Ursinus Men’s Lacrosse team, in partnership with We Are One 365, will be honoring the sacrifices of our military and their families on Saturday when it hosts McDaniel College at Patterson Field in Collegeville, Pa.

The game is scheduled for a 3 p.m. start.

The Bears will be the first to participate in the 365 Game Day Program and will be wearing the 365 team shirts for warm ups. We Are One 365’s mission is to raise awareness for the daily sacrifice made by our military and to support military families in need.

“The Ursinus Men’s Lacrosse players have come together as a team to make the We Are One 365 pledge. They are the first college team to make the pledge and we are proud to have them sport our gear,” said Matthew Wood, CEO and Founder of WAO 365.

Men’s Lacrosse has participated in several ways so far this year:

1. “Making the Pledge” to wear the 365 shirts once per week for a team workout to raise awareness and show their support for the sacrifices of our military and their families.

2. 100% of the money raised from shirt sales was donated to a family in Oxford, Maine. The father of the family was killed in action while serving in Iraq as part of the 41st Field Artillery Regiment. In honor of their sacrifice, the team and WAO 365 donated $500 in supermarket gift cards to alleviate some of the monthly financial burden on the family.
