The Gift of Soccer has partnered with the US Soccer Federation to collect new and gently used soccer gear to support the local, regional, and international soccer communities. We start with finding local soccer organizations that have equipment needs. Then when we have excess equipment, we funnel these through local charities doing community outreach outside the US borders. The program provides the opportunity that allows local soccer families to reach out and connect to the larger soccer community. This is a wonderful way to teach players and families how be self-aware of their fortunes and become a more involved member of our communities. Volunteer with your teammates or as a individual.
Items that are often collected:
- gently used cleats
- gently used Uniforms
- gently used shin guards
- gently gear bags
- no used balls (some exceptions). Used soccer balls rarely hold air properly.
- GOS donates One World Futbol soccer balls for our international donations.
