Donate your Gently Used Soccer Equipment!Updated Wednesday May 17, 2017 by Concetta Slaney.
I became involved in a not for profit organization called Samba 360 in 2015. I not only volunteer, but I am currently a member of their High School Advisory Board serving as the Vice President. This is a great opportunity for me to get involved with an organization that's passionate about soccer and giving back like I am, as well as connecting with other young people through sports. Samba 360s mission is to provide disadvantaged children with opportunities by providing them with donated sports equipment.
Along with its founder, Shawn Brown, Samba 360 has sent new and gently used soccer equipment to Brazil, El Salvador, Honduras, Jamaica, Ecuador, Mexico, Haiti, and Argentina. Samba 360 has also supplied many organizations in the US, including MercyFirst, the Westbury Soccer Club, the Shinnecock Indian Nation, the SEED Schools of Washington DC and Baltimore with thousands of new and gently used soccer gear.
The Manhasset Soccer Club as well as the Manhasset soccer community have been very generous with their support of Samba 360s mission in the past. I'd like to again reach out to the Manhasset Soccer community to collect new and gently used soccer items such as:
I will have a collection bin outside our home throughout the season – 54 Bartlett Drive. Thank you in advance for helping to support Samba 360.
