Bay soccer gear round-up

Ready to clean out your dresser drawers, closets and garage? Bay Village is hosting a soccer gear roundup from April 23 through May 8. Members of the Bay Soccer Club and Bay Presbyterian Church have joined forces to collect used soccer items to support the work of Ambassadors Football International, a 25-year-old international soccer ministry headquartered in Twinsburg, Ohio. Ambassadors missionaries will then distribute the gear to needy youths overseas.

If your children have outgrown shirts, jerseys, shorts, sox, shin guards, gloves or cleats, this is a wonderful opportunity to repurpose them. Used balls in decent shape and soccer backpacks are also welcome. If you are a team coach or manager, please note that it would be especially helpful to obtain entire team uniforms.

Large collection boxes will be located within the Children's Entrance of Bay Presbyterian Church and at the Soccer Shed in Cahoon Park. Drop-offs will be accepted at Cahoon Park on the Saturday mornings of April 23, April 30 and May 7.
