On Monday night, someone stole $4,000 worth of equipment from the American Youth Soccer League at North Valleys Regional Park. But thanks to folks in the community, help is on the way.
We stopped by soccer practice Wednesday night. Kids, parents and coaches were all upset after what had happened.
But after people heard about the thefts, the emails and phone calls started pouring in.
The Nevada Amateur Radio Association donated $1,000 to the league.
Sherwin Williams pitched in and donated spray paint cans to keep the field in good shape.
And the Reno Santa Crawl agreed to match $1 donated up to $2,000.
The soccer league says it's thrilled with how the community is stepping up in such a big way.
Without the donations, it would have affected games for all 47 teams in the league.
Coaches say now, all 400 kids can continue to compete.
"Children were so upset, they were worried that they weren't going to be able to play, but we can play now. We can move on from this," says Michelle Butler.
The league says if it exceeds the donations needed to replace the equipment, it still will invest all the extra money into the kids as well.
It plans on buying new soccer balls, uniforms and referee supplies.
