First Tee - Raritan Valley is very grateful and appreciative of the great support that we continue to receive, but there is still much to be accomplished. Here is a photo from Baltusrol Golf Club with their recent donation of 6,000 golf balls to our chapter. Many private clubs and individuals donate golf clubs, golf shoes, golf balls, and other items that can be utilized by our students wishing to begin our program. If you would like to donate golf clubs, we accept sets of irons, metal drivers and fairway metals, putters, and wedges.

Your generous donation will help give a kid a chance to play one of life's greatest games. As you know golf is a very expensive sport. Many of our participants come from low to middle-income families and cannot afford a set of golf clubs or golf bags. Please help give the gift of golf for one or more of our participants by donating your old clubs or golf equipment to our program. With our program recently expanding, we can use any and all equipment you could provide. Thank you for your generosity and support. Each year we provide financial assistance to approximately 28% of our students that come from less fortunate circumstances. We are currently hosting our "Sponsor a Child" program to help provide funding for less fortunate children. Please help sponsor a child in our program. For more information on sponsoring a child, please call Mark McCabe, Executive Director at (908) 245-1120. Thank you for your support!
