Fund-A-Need

Let's Play Soccer #4132

I am seeking donations to provide funds to help low-income students, mostly refugee students, play soccer.

Another teacher and I began working with a small group of students and their families two years ago. Our first Fund-a-Need gave 10 students the opportunity to play soccer. Each season the need has grown and this season I would like to raise enough money to provide registration for 43 students to play soccer through the YMCA. The YMCA generously provides a 50 percent discount for these students. The students and their families are from Nigeria, Iraq, Jordan, Thailand, The Ivory Coast and Mexico. All of the students have a place on a team's roster, two female teams and six male teams, the age range is: 10-17 years old. Students attend Prescott, Irving, Park, Culler, Schoo, Lincoln High, Northeast, Southeast and East.

It is an amazing opportunity for the students to be a part of a team, learn leadership skills and to be active.
