Chargers Donate Equipment to Local School

Posted Jun 26, 2013

The San Diego Chargers donated equipment to Scripps Ranch High School.


The San Diego Chargers have a rich history of giving back to the city of San Diego.

They continued that on Wednesday, donating approximately 35 shoulder pads and other used equipment to Scripps Ranch High School.

“This is amazing because a lot of the kids that we have at our school are in need of items,” said Joe Meyer, head football coach and athletic director for Scripps Ranch. “It’s good for us to be able to hand out this equipment to them and let them know that they are wanted and welcome anytime.  If they have any issues there are people who will take care of them like the Chargers.  Having these shoulder pads are appreciated by the Chargers and (Equipment Manager) Bob (Wick). We really don’t get a huge budget to work with.  A lot of our money is fundraised.  So for them to donate this equipment is very much appreciated.”

Meyer picked up multiple boxes filled to the brim from the Chargers equipment room, and they will be put to immediate use for the 2013 season.


Now, you can stay in touch with the team anytime, anywhere, on your mobile device with the official app of the San Diego Chargers.
