David and Matthew Weiss, co-presidents of the NY Region of On The Rebound, recently collected and distributed golf equipment to The First Tee of Nassau County, a program that teaches youngsters the essentials of the game of golf along with life lessons.
David is currently completing his senior year at Jericho High School where Matthew is completing his sophomore year.
On The Rebound is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the collection and distribution of new and gently used sports equipment to disadvantaged children.
David and Matthew have made numerous deliveries of equipment is the past, but this was their first delivery of golf equipment. David and Matthew hope to encourage children to participate in all sports, develop personal and social skills and improve their physical and emotional health through sports. They hope that their efforts in collecting and distributing sports equipment to various children’s organizations, will enable all children to play sports, many of whom might not otherwise have had the opportunity.
