Mo’s Sports Garage – Supports Kids of All Sorts
Mo Queirolo, a Woodgrove sophomore has a passion for sports and wants to share it with others.
As kids switch sports and grow, many of us have sports equipment that is in good shape but no longer in use. Please check your garage and home for items to donate and bring them to Woodgrove High School to be placed in Mo’s Sports Garage boxes. Mo along with Pam Hayba, Parent Liaison locate children in need of the equipment. Please support Mo in this very compassionate and worthwhile endeavor.
