Gates Youth Soccer takes pride in taking part in helping our local community in different ways every year throughout different events; but this year we were fortunate enough to help a small town in Nicaragua called El Sauce. When hearing that a Rochester based organization called 4 Walls was going on a trip to Nicaragua in August we wanted to help. We donated over 100 never worn jerseys we had in storage. We also paid for the luggage fees to have the jersey’s transported on the airplane. We were told that the children were so excited and put the jersey’s on and wore them the whole time they were there.
We are so fortunate to have what we have and to be able to give back and make a difference in another country makes what we do worth doing.
