Devyn Baldus, Zoe Moura, and I did our leadership project for Soccer Pro’s international collection of soccer items for kids that need them. First, we gave out flyers to RAGE teams, as well as our team—U11 Grey—to show that we would be putting out collection boxes for a week at the Sports Park in Pleasanton. After a week, we had collected many items such as balls, backpacks, flags, shin guards, socks, cleats, uniforms, and flags. On December 14th, we went to Soccer Pro to drop off the items we had collected. We got to see pictures of past collections that went to Haiti, and Costa Rica, as well as receiving Soccer Pro t-shirts (pictured at bottom) to commemorate the collection. I learned that it is very simple to make people’s lives much, much happier. I am so glad that we got to help many kids have soccer equipment!
