The Rage 05 ECNL WIN!

The Rage 05 ECNL side finished atop a very competitive NorCal Premier league (Region 3/4/5) following a 1-0 win over Santa Rosa United ECNL.  Rage got out to an early lead, beating the SRU back line followed by a beautiful finish within the opening minutes.  Axel Thibodeau’s team staunch defending kept SRU off the board for the remaining 65+ minutes.  The 05s finished 6-0-2 with an astonishing 31-2 goal differential and are off to compete in the always exciting State Cup season.  Good luck girls!

Kids Against Hunger Packing Event

For our RAGE Leadership Project, we organized a Kids Against Hunger packing event with both of our teams and our big/little sister teams. This project was done by Kylia and Isabella from the 06 Premier and Orange teams. We really appreciate the help from everyone who supported our project. Kids Against Hunger packs a variety of nutritional items into a bag that gets weighed and sealed to be sent to wherever it is needed. The items in the bag consisted of dried vegetables, soy protein, rice, and vitamin powder. We had to measure out all of these items and funnel them into the bag. When we packed the food, we chose to have the food sent to Puerto Rico. We chose Puerto Rico because they had recently suffered from a terrible hurricane. Afterwards, we learned we packed 6,480 meals. It felt good to know how we helped others less fortunate than we are.

Kids Against Hunger

Fist I went to a warehouse here in Pleasanton that was owned by a company called Kids Against Hunger. Kids Against Hunger is an organization that has

volunteer spack food and ship it off to places that need it like Haiti. I was in a group with 6 people in it in total and we were the smallest group. Everyone had individual jobs, and I was the person weighing all the bags making sure no one had too much food or too little food in each bag. We packed food and before we knew it, we had packed a total of 4,320 meals in between all three groups.

I was proud to be part of this organization which saves people’s lives every day. I really loved this experience and look forward to doing it again.

Open Heart Kitchen

Hello, my name is Matthew Fields from the U12 Select One. For my BUSC leadership project my team and I volunteered at Open Heart Kitchen.

Open Heart provides lunches and snacks for elementary schools in Pleasanton and Livermore. We went to the Livermore site to help pack the weekend bags.

When we arrived they had a assembly line already set up. Our team of 12 lined up and started packing the weekend bags. We packed juice,  milk, oranges, apples, goldfish, hummus, carrots, granola bars, beef jerky and muffins.  The supervisor told us that these were kids only snacks for the weekend.  At the end we were responsible for cleaning up and breaking down the tables and boxes.  We helped pack over 2,400 bags for the schools.

I chose Open Heart Kitchen because my goal was to help children who aren’t as lucky as us.  My team worked well together and hopes to do this again in the future!

Fall Fest Fundraiser/Community Event

For my community service project I decided to volunteer at the Fall Fest at Walt Disney Elementary School. I did this because I felt that teachers should make more money than they actually make and we should support kids and their local schools. All of the money raised at this event went to Walt Disney Elementary school activities, helping to create a wholesome environment for youth.

This event probably raised over $2,000 for the school, had about 150 participants total, and there were about 40 volunteers throughout the day. I worked at the concession stand and also helped with clean-up after the event concluded. Overall, I think this project was a success and I hope the money raised helps this local school in my community!
