Gates Youth Soccer takes pride by taking part in helping our local community in different ways every year throughout different events; but this 2016 season we were fortunate enough to help the small town of El Sauce in Nicaragua. In hearing that a Rochester based organization called 4 Walls was going on a trip to Nicaragua in August, Gates Youth Soccer wanted to help! They donated over 100 brand new , never worn jerseys they had in storage and 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 immediately put the jersey’s on wearing 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 to children in another country makes the volunteering even more gratifying and do worth it.”
