The USG Operations Team processes donations.

This past month, Uncommon Sports Group's innovative Clean Out For A Cause® operation received 15,237 pounds of sports equipment and apparel donations from individuals working in collegiate and professional sports teams nationwide.

As a non-profit organization, Uncommon Sports Group's initiatives are funded directly by the donations that our Clean Out For A Cause® program produces. These donations are monetized through our unique e-commerce operation, which funds our missions, services, and educational activities.

In this blog, the impact of this month's donations will be reflected to highlight the awesome work happening through each and every donation we receive!

The USG Academy

Uncommon Sports Group's mission is to come alongside Christ-followers within the college and pro sport industry. Part of that mission is accomplished through the USG Academy program.

This eight-week virtual development course gives young professionals in the sport industry an opportunity to grow in their personal relationships with Christ through challenging daily devotionals and staff-led discipleship and elevate their professionalism through practical professional development tools.

Beginning at the end of July, Uncommon Sports Group launched its 12th USG Academy group. Because of our faithful Clean Out For A Cause® donors, fifteen young professionals received a one-of-a-kind development experience, strengthening their discipleship of Jesus while providing them with training to give them an 'edge' in pursuing a career in collegiate of professional sports.

Israel Impact Trip

This past July, Uncommon Sports Group traveled to Israel for its summer Impact Trip with eleven members and two staff.

This trip provided each member with an opportunity to engage with hands-on ministry experience through a local Baptist Day Camp. The camp hosted hundreds of Messianic Jewish children throughout the week. The team also had the chance to tour some of the most well-known Biblical landmarks, including the Sea of Galilee and the Garden of Gethsemane.

International trips such as these are the meat and potatoes, so to speak, of Uncommon Sports Group's impact, and without our faithful donors through the Clean Out For A Cause program, trips such as these are not possible!

The innovative Clean Out For A Cause® operation and the hundreds of donors that provide used and excess sports gear to the initiative consistently are essential in providing the impact that Uncommon Sports Group has seen in hundreds of lives throughout the college and pro sport industry. Uncommon Sports Group and Clean Out For A Cause® sincerely thank you for being willing to support our cause!
