Donate soccer uniforms to children in Guatemala and Haiti

September 24, 2013   ·   0 Comments

Silent Children’s Mission, previously known as Legacy of Love, is a local charitable organization run out of Schomberg, which endeavors to relieve poverty in developing countries, more specifically in Africa and Latin America.
It assists various organizations that are providing direct assistance to abused children and women (physically and otherwise) through the provision of shelter, counseling and educational programs.  Silent Children’s Mission is now able to work through approximately 35 active missionaries in about 12 different countries. Help is provided to all people, especially women and children, regardless of race or religion.
Silent Children’s Mission is currently preparing a shipping container to leave for Guatemala later this month and also is affiliated with a group which makes regular trips to Haiti to provide aid and medical relief there. Silent Children’s Mission hopes to be able to send several sets of soccer uniforms and equipment to both of these counties, with the help of the King United Soccer Club membership and community.
“Because we at Silent Children’s Mission believe that children everywhere should have the right to play as well as eat, we have decided to appeal to the King United Soccer Club membership and community to consider donating gently used soccer uniforms, now that the season has ended. It is our vision to be able to send over several full sets of uniforms, so that as many children as possible will have the opportunity to play,” said Beth Antonic, Silent Children’s Mission coordinator.
Drop boxes for uniforms will be located in all three of the King Township arenas until Monday, Sept. 30.
On Sept. 28, the first batch will be taken to the warehouse and packed up for shipping directly to Guatemala. Later in the year, more will be carried to Haiti. Just think – in a couple of short months all of those lovely King United jerseys will arrive to be given to some wonderful children who will truly appreciate them!
Food, education, and play are basic rights that we take for granted for our own children, but they are sadly not universal. Let’s help to see that children everywhere have a chance to share in these fundamentals. It’s such an easy thing for us to do!
If you have any questions about the uniform drive, please feel free to contact Antonic at 905-859-7652 or bethantonic@yahoo.ca.
