Equipment Across Continents in Haiti
December 27th 2014. Coaches Across Continents haven’t only brought sustainable social change to communities globally this year. We have also donated over $54,200 worth of sports equipment to our partners and other organizations in disadvantaged communities in 2014. In June we donated $18,200 worth of equipment to a partner in Haiti.
This donation included different types of sports equipment such as soccer jerseys, shorts, socks, zip jackets, soccer balls, backpacks and shoulder bags. The equipment has been and will be used by children and young people in the community. In Haiti the equipment donated will be used to kit out a number of youth teams across the island- both girls and boys. Without it it was far more difficult for these teams to participate leading to children unable to play organized soccer. A lack of equipment holds back many of our community partners who are always keen to provide their community with the tools to not only play sports but also feel part of a team. By making donations such as this we can help many disadvantaged communities bring happiness to local youth through sports.
In order to make these donations we rely on people buying sports equipment from our warehouse. We have bags, cheerleading shoes, jackets, t-shirts, shorts, socks and balls in all sizes for teams and individuals looking for sports equipment.
