General, Team Weeks | Aug 6th, 2010

Shane Victorino with Bustleton Bengals Team Weeks Organization

To launch the Modell’s Sporting Goods Sports Exchange program, Phillies center fielder and Nike athlete Shane Victorino paid a visit to the Modell’s on Snyder Avenue in South Philadelphia on Friday, August 6th. Shane met up with the Bustleton Bengals Youth Baseball Organization at the store, who as a member of the Modell’s Team Weeks Program was was chosen to be the first group to participate in the Sports Exchange. The kids were the first to make donations into the Sports Exchange bin and each child got a chance to interact with Shane and receive a brand new Nike backpack and Nike PRO compression t-shirt.

The Sports Exchange will run from August 6th-14th, during which time you can trade in your old sporting goods & receive 10% off your total purchase at any Modell’s location! Modell’s is teaming up with Sports Gift Inc. to have all gently used donated equipment provided to communities that are in need locally and beyond. For more information visit
