|My co-president Lexi (L) and I!|
I recently sent down a shipment of 16 boots, a ball pump and 17 soccer balls with my co-president to "get the ball rolling" for lack of a better term, but we are supporting a football club with several players of all ages and will accept as many donations as people can spare. We would have been able to collect more before the deadline, but asking people to drop off their donations at my house was too complicated and asked too much out of someone who was already going out of their way to help us. What we are looking for are local business owners who would be willing to allow us to have people drop off donations for the club at their shop, store, restaurant, building or whatever it may be rather than having to find me or bring it to my house, which is out of the way for many of the people who offered things up.
If you or someone you know owns a local business that would be willing to have a large donation box or posters advertising our interest in old soccer gear, please send them my way!
On a side note, I am also looking for a venue to host a large scale fundraiser for our club before the end of the summer or any time that we can arrange at their convenience.
