I decided to organize the fundraiser through Peace Passers because it specializes in soccer. Soccer is important to me because it is my sport, the sport I play. I love everything about the game, and I have first hand seen the less fortunate try to play with no shoes, no real soccer ball, etc. I want these kids to keep on loving the game as much as I do. Because soon they will just forget about it because they are tired of playing with paper balls, and of their feet hurting due to no proper protection.
My goal for the collection is to collect as many soccer balls, jerseys, cleats, etc. as I can. I estimate to bring in 15 soccer balls, 50 jerseys, 25 cleats, and 30 miscellaneous soccer items.
My collection will take place at my former elementary school, Pacific Elementary School; at another neighborhood elementary school, Meadows Elementary Schools; and throughout my club soccer team called Strikers South Bay headquartered in El Segundo, CA.
As of 11/14/2016 I have collected:
32 soccer balls (several sizes)
46 pairs of soccer cleats (several sizes)
30 pairs of shin guards (several sizes)
25 pairs of soccer socks
22 soccer shorts
31 soccer jerseys, various colors
