Uniform Donations for Haiti

George Fox University sent a group of nursing students to Haiti December 27 - January 6 to do community health education in several rural communities.

They also coordinated with New Roots Haiti to provide soccer jerseys for a brand new youth soccer league being formed in these communities. The kids (boys and girls) playing in this new youth league, play without any team jerseys.

THANK you from Haiti -

We brought down over 75 uniforms, 30 pairs of cleats, 30 balls, shin guards, goalkeeper uniforms and gear, backpacks, etc. from Westside Timbers donations, for a new youth soccer league in northern Haiti. It was fun to deliver the uniforms yesterday and watch one of the teams put on their new gear. They pulled those socks all the way up to the tops of their thighs! Very cute! All of the teams are so thrilled to have their very first uniforms. The George Fox Haiti Team and New Roots Haiti thank you for your generosity on behalf of these young Haitian soccer players. You can follow the progress of the Haitian soccer teams on New Roots Haiti Facebook page of you want to see how your donated uniforms are being put to good re-use.
