Saskatoon Youth Soccer Inc. donates over 160 soccer balls

Thank you to Saskatoon Youth Soccer Inc. for your support and donation!

The response has been tremendous and very quick!  Just before the weekend we contacted the Saskatoon Youth Soccer Inc. organization with the hopes to see whether they had any spare soccer balls they could donate to our Grand Toy Drive for Bukovyns'ka Mriya. 

On Monday, I received an email from their Executive Director, Amanda M. Probe asking when can we come and pick them up as well as whether we could gather a small team to help deflate the balls.  Little did we know just how many balls there would be. 

Without an official count, we think there are over 160 soccer balls.

Arriving there with my SUV, I thought, no problem, I will just load them up and take them home.  Well 5 trips later, this is what our garage at home looked like.

I will post more pictures as we start sorting through the immense amount of soccer goodness.  In addition to the balls, we also picked up two boxes of long sleeve shirts as part of the donation.

This is our first large contribution from a local association here in Saskatoon and we cannot thank the Saskatoon Youth Soccer Inc. and their membership as well as their Executive for their tremendous donation that will impact many of our kids in Ukraine. 

We hope that this sets the stage of just how we can work together to benefit these kids, who have become truly dependent on your donations and support.

Thank you Saskatoon Youth Soccer Inc. for your support and contribution to our efforts in Ukraine.  We truly appreciate this gift and will keep updating with more pictures.
