Equipment Across Continents in Jamaica
March 18th 2014. Coaches Across Continents don’t only bring sustainable social change to communities globally. In 2014, we also donated over $54,200 worth of sports equipment to our partners and other organizations in disadvantaged communities. We have started 2015 in an even bigger way. Our partners in Jamaica, including former president of the Jamaican Football Federation Anthony James, recently received $129,204 worth of sports equipment from Coaches Across Continents.
This donation included different types of sports equipment such as soccer jerseys, zip jackets, soccer balls, backpacks and shoulder bags. The equipment has been and will be used by children and young people in communities across central Jamaica. The equipment donated will kit out a full youth soccer league for boys and girls. Without it there was no way for any of these leagues to take place leading to the children being 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 equipment needed to play sport. By making these donations we can help many disadvantaged communities bring happiness to local youth through the power of play.
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 to purchase sports equipment.
