Donating shoes, shinguards, soccer balls and, yes, entire sets of uniforms is an excellent way for players to learn the importance of generosity and charity. Sets of uniforms given back to the region have been passed on to needy youth teams locally and in places as far away as Cameroon.
Ask your team, and make it clear that this is strictly voluntary. Some younger players or players new to AYSO may be reluctant to part with what may be their very first athletic uniform. However, for those players willing to donate their jersey, shorts and socks, make clear to parents your collection plans (e.g., immediately after the last match, with all players bringing a change of clothes). You can drop off uniforms and any other useable gear at the administration tent on game days late in the season.
