Even if you don't live in Coopersville, even if you don't have a kid who is into sports, you know that sports can play a big role in a child's development.

The folks at Coopersville Recreation work tirelessly to make sure that kids in Coopersville and the surrounding areas have a ton of different sports to choose from - soccer, baseball, cheerleading, football, softball, and volleyball (plus a ton more). Coopersville Rec says that they think it's important that ALL kids be able to participate, even if their family may not be able to afford the costs associated with playing. So, they have a system set up, which is utilized frequently, for those who cannot afford to participate.

As you can imagine, this makes it a little difficult for them to replace their equipment when it becomes unusable.

Thankfully, Coopersville Rec was chosen to take part in the Let's Play Before and After Photo Contest! If Coopersville wins the contest, they will receive a $15,000 grant to use for equipment for West Michigan kids. (For second place, they'll receive $10,000, and for third place they'll get $5,000.)

There are only a few days left to vote, but you CAN vote every single day. All you have to do is go to Let's Play's Facebook page and vote for Coopersville Rec! Let's help out this great West Michigan organization that's dedicated to the kids in our communities!
