Boston, MA — Today, the College Squash Association is announcing that it will support SquashCares, an initiative that recycles used squash balls to make therapeutic ball blankets for people with disabilities.
Since SquashCares began in 2014, the organization has collected over 7,000 used squash balls for the creation of fleece ball blankets. These blankets were donated to help individuals with attention deficit disorder (ADHD) and autism.
The College Squash Association will hold collections at this season’s championship weekends. All schools participating in the events are encouraged to bring used squash balls to donate to SquashCares. Teams donating squash balls are encouraged to mark their contributions for recognition. All squash fans are encouraged to make donations as well.
With the support of players, coaches, alumni, parents, and the collegiate community, the College Squash Association hopes to collect a large amount of squash balls that will assist SquashCares.
