Holiday Gifts for Local Kids and Families

Holiday Gifts for Local Kids and Families

Our service project was working with the Pleasanton Police Department to deliver Holiday Gifts to kids and families around Pleasanton who don’t have a lot of money to buy gifts. The P.P.D (Pleasanton Police Department) gave us a list of kids by age and gender that were in need of gifts. We shared that list with our soccer team and asked them to donate gifts for our project. Some people donated money for us to pick out the gifts instead. We also asked for donations from our friends and family as well. We then took the money that was donated and went shopping for the kids on the list we still needed gifts for which was fun! We ended up having a gift for all of the kids on the list! When we donated all the gifts to the P.P.D they told us we could go out with them to deliver them! We met the officer at the police station on Dec. 20th, 2016. They told us which items we would be delivering, and introduced us to the officer that would be helping us. He let us load up a wagon and wheel them to the car and load them in. We got to ride in the police car, even though there wasn’t any lights it was pretty cool. We made lots of stops and everyone was very thankful. We felt very happy we were able to give to kids who might not have gotten a present during the holidays! It reminded us to be thankful for what we have and to always give more than we receive. It definitely made us feel happy that day to make others smile.

U13 Premier/EGSL – Open Heart Kitchen

openheart1 openheart2Hi, our names Ella Melvin, Alli Jones, and Emily Gossett and we our on the U13 Premier/EGSL team.  For the RAGE leadership community service project we decided to collect cans for the Open Heart Kitchen. We started thinking of this idea during the holiday season. We chose to do this project because not everybody is as fortunate to receive the meals that we receive daily.

We decided to collect cans from our soccer team, family, friends, and neighbors. We started out asking our team to bring cans to practice to help us in achieving our goal of 100 cans.  After asking for cans from them we went around the neighborhood and asked for cans and told them about our cause for the Open Heart Kitchen.  On our journey around the neighborhood we came across a worker at the Open Heart Kitchen she said that she was very thankful for our work and that people will be very thankful for food we have brought in. We ended up collecting more cans than our goal of one hundred.

We learned a lot from this experience. To add, we also had a great time gathering and planning this idea to help others in need. We were very glad we chose to do this because it made us happy to give to others. In the future we hope that you consider this idea as well.

U12 Rage Player wins Northern California 1/2 Mile Track Championship


The other day I was in the Pacific Association Championship track meet in Sacramento running the half mile. It was my second competitive track meet and my first competitive meet in the half mile.   There were over 70 other runners who were seasoned track competitors.  I was in the last and fastest heat based on my being a fast runner and having a fast 400 time.  When the gun went off I decided to hang back like my coach said.  I stayed near the back of the pack for the first lap and a half..  Then I was feeling good so decided to turn on my sprinting.  I caught at least five girls.  Then I came up on the one girl who everyone knows for winning so many medals.  I passed her then on the final 100 meters was able to catch the last girl and win gold!  My current time of 2:29 puts me in the top 10-15 nationwide.  If all goes well I am going to the Junior Olympics in Florida in late July.  – Lizzy.
