To the Editor:

The New Milford Youth Agency would like to thank everyone in the community for the support of our first sports equipment swap that took place at the end of March.

There are too many individuals and groups to thank, from sports programs to families to businesses in town who helped spread the word, donated or consigned items, volunteered time for the event or stopped in to purchase items.

There were hundreds of people involved and we are so grateful.

This event gave local children the opportunity to purchase high-quality items at inexpensive prices.

More than $450 was collected and given to New Milford's MVP-SOS, which helps to offset costs for youth enrichment activities.

All remaining items were delivered to "Let's Play It Forward," who will deliver items to deserving programs.

We are looking forward to a fall sports swap, so we hope the community will help the families once again.
