Collection

Cohasset High School Soccer Teams set up collection bins in 2 different towns (Cohasset, MA, Hingham, MA) and were able to secure a large number of uniforms that were never used. They even coordinated with a shipping company and borrowed space on freight trucks to get it shipped to us. The high school teams sorted and packed the boxes. A lot of hard work and resourcefulness were needed to pull this off.

This was a donation that filled a very deep need in the Kampala Region in Uganda AFRICA.
The work and dedication that went into this was incredible. We are grateful to the organizers and the donors for this impressive donation drive! We hope your heart is full after seeing the video of where these donations ended up and the joy you have provided to so many in Uganda. Your hard work and dedication has paid off.
