SEATTLE, Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Prep Sportswear, a leading direct-to-consumer online retailer for personalized fan gear and apparel, has recently launched a Little League® approved fundraising solution that enables all participants to represent their local league. The fundraising solution consists of a Custom Gear Shop available for each of the 5,100+ local Little League programs, which players, coaches, volunteers, umpires and fans can customize and purchase apparel.
"Prep Sportswear's unique ability to personalize headwear and apparel provides great value to our local leagues," said Dustin Solomon, Little League Director of Retail Licensing and Merchandising Operations. "With a Custom Gear Shop each supporter can represent their local league while also fundraising for the league."
Each league will receive 15% of the proceeds from its custom gear shop. With this solution, local leagues have a turnkey fundraising tool to help raise funds as many leagues are challenged each year with having adequate finances to fully cover expenses.
"Prep Sportswear is excited to offer a local Little League fundraising solution that addresses the need to financially support local leagues each year," said Patrick Terrell, Prep Sportswear Senior Vice President of Marketing. "Whether it's equipment for the team or financial support to cover traveling expenses during tournament season, this fundraising solution makes it easy to raise funds. League officials simply need to activate a store and build awareness within the local community. Prep Sportswear will handle the order processing, printing, shipping, and tracking of sales and funds generated."
With more than 60 local Little League programs already signed up, the Little League Custom Gear Shop is a one-stop shop for customized apparel that helps the local league with every purchase. Local Little League programs can visit Fundraising.PrepSportswear.com to learn how to create a Little League Custom Gear Shop for their league.
