Soccer Equipment Drop Off

Tip #1
Please do as much cleaning and prep work on the items as you can. Washed clothing, polished boots with new laces, etc. goes a long way to making it easier on our end...thanks again for your generosity!


We are always looking for organizations who will partner with us for an equipment "pass back." Gently used soccer gear is collected by organizations, sorted by BSC, and redistributed to players in our organization who are unable to purchase equipment themselves.

Gear Type

Buffalo Soccer Club will have children between the ages of five (5) and sixteen (16) participating in various soccer events throughout the year.   Below is a list of the items we are looking for...

  • shin guards
  • indoor shoes
  • outdoor shoes
  • soccer socks
  • soccer shorts
  • soccer balls

Tip #2
Bag your clothes in a plastic shopping bag before you drop it in the bin to ensure it stays clean and ready to wear!

Tax Deduction Information

Used Clothing

  • Used clothing and other personal items are usually worth far less than the price you paid for them. Valuation of items of clothing does not lend   itself to fixed formulas or methods.
    • The price that buyers of used items actually pay in used clothing stores, such as consignment or thrift shops, is an indication of the value.
    • You cannot take a deduction for clothing donated after August 17, 2006, unless it is in good used condition or better. An item of clothing that is not in good used condition or better for which you take a deduction of more than $500 requires a qualified appraisal. See Deduction over $500 for certain clothing or household items, later.
    • See IRS website for details!
