Dear LUSC family,
Happy Spring 2019! As you begin your spring cleaning, please consider donating your used but still usable soccer equipment to disadvantaged children in Nicaragua. Your donations will support a local Nicaraguan soccer academy that works with disadvantaged boys between the ages of 6 to18. This academy seeks to provide these at-risk youth with a positive sports experience in an effort to enrich and improve their lives.
Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and recent political events have made life even more difficult there. Even the most basic items that we take for granted, such as cleats and soccer balls, are well beyond the reach of most families. Your donation allows these children to play organized soccer in a supportive environment and to experience all of the positive benefits of a team sport.
This will be the 10th time that our family has partnered with LUSC to collect and distribute soccer gear in Nicaragua. Words cannot express our gratitude to the LUSC community for its incredible support of these past efforts. Every piece of soccer related clothing or equipment that you see in the photo above came from a generous LUSC family. Your generosity has a direct and powerful impact on the lives of these boys.
This year we are looking for donations of:
**** Soccer cleats (smaller sizes prioritized)
**** Soccer balls, all sizes.
**** Shin guards
**** Soccer socks
**** Soccer shorts
**** LUSC uniforms only!
**** Goalie gloves
Our deadline for this years’ donation drive is SUNDAY, APRIL 26, 2019. Please drop off your items in the receptacle on the front porch at 66 Ledgelawn Avenue in Lexington. If you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617 283 0090 (Tom’s cell phone).
Thank you very much.
Tom Boreiko and Alison Coolidge
