The North Snohomish Little League is reeling after their equipment was stolen from a locked storage unit over the weekend. The league has 35 teams and 325 kids ages 4-16 who were relying on that equipment as they head into the 2018 season. That equipment was brand new and had been donated by the Mariners and Scott’s at the end of last season to help the league that so desperately needed new helmets to keep the kids safe.
The good news is, our generous communities have stepped up to help North Snohomish, but they could always use some more help. NSLL is different than a lot of leagues around Washington in that they own their own their own property. VP of the league, Darren Unrue says “That makes us responsible for taking care of our 26 acre complex and that’s a challenge. We have one good mower and two mowers that we spend a crazy amount of money on each year with repairs. These are just some of the challenges but again, we certainly don’t want to turn this into a money grab. We appreciate all the help spreading the word to the community and the donations are heart warming.”
The 2018 season starts Monday and they are always looking for volunteers to come out and help maintain the fields.
