GOALS has just received a generous donation from the US Soccer Federation's Passback program! Passback shipped us new and lightly used apparel and equipment to GOALS just in time for the 2011 programs. The t-shirts, uniforms, socks, goalie apparel, cones, bags and soccer balls will be crucial in supporting our existing after-school program and expanding to new sites.
What is Passback?
The Passback program collects new and gently used soccer gear through organizations, teams, clubs and individuals and is redistributed across the globe to help underserved communities play soccer. Soccer is a unifying force that brings together people of all ethnicities and has the power to open doors, hearts and minds of those who play.
Since its inception, the Passback Program has collected and distributed over 713,399 pieces of soccer gear. However, there is always more that can be done. Their ultimate goal is to collect and distribute 1 million pieces of equipment.
Help GOALS by helping Passback! We want to work with Passback to donate more soccer equipment in Haiti in 2011.
Become a Passback star by organizing a soccer equipment drive. People all over the world are helping more kids play soccer, and we think that we can take this even further. Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on the site so we can get the ball rolling!
