Girl Scout Cadettes Jillian and Madelyn recently earned their Silver Award by completing a project they titled, “Soccer Equipment Collection for the Luke Messick Futbol Charities, Inc.”
The Girl Scouts collected soccer jerseys, socks, and soccer balls to benefit Luke Messick Futbol Charities Inc. By collecting these items, they helped to provide dozens of children in Ghana, West Africa with equipment to practice the very popular futbol, or soccer, as we call it in the United States. The girls collected the items with the help of members and staff at Beach FC, located in Virginia Beach, a soccer organization that provides recreation and training to soccer players locally.
“To collect our equipment we set up a stand at the Beach FC preseason camp and the Beach FC Futsal Facility,” the girls said. “We also partnered with the Luke Messick Futbol Charities Inc. and this is where we gave our equipment to.”
Upon completion of the drive, the equipment was donated to Luke Messick Futbol Charities Inc who organized air transport of the equipment to the Young Orphans Futbol Club in Ghana, West Africa.
