A pair of cleats can mean the world to a child. A team uniform can represent a sense of belonging. There are many communities where children love soccer but don’t have the resources to play.  Your donated soccer items will have a second life after being matched with a child who can use them.

Give for the Goal is a volunteer network, founded by a youth soccer player to benefit the lives of other youth soccer players.
