PMSC Player gives back in HUGE way!
Ethan Hite and his family went on their first Mission trip to Haiti, under the guidance of Dr. Gardy, and our cousin Judy Douglas. We heard that soccer was a very big deal amongst the school kids in Haiti, so we took it upon ourselves to ask our team for donated items. The school kids in the Montrouis area of Haiti, wanted uniforms for two reasons; one being that they only have school uniforms during play time, and because they didn’t have laundry soap to wash the uniforms, they preferred to keep them as clean as possible, thus having a change of sports clothes was a bonus; and second, they, of course, wanted to have teams, so opposite colour of jerseys were also wanted.
The kids play soccer on a gravel road or dirt field, and usually in bare feet, so cleats were a nice treat to have, and new soccer balls were received with gratitude because their soccer balls don’t last very long given the condition of the playing areas. The donations were collected from the PMO U14 boys Tigers team, as well as from a few friends and neighbours associated with the PMSC. We were honoured to deliver the donations personally, and see the kids excited and having new stuff. If you are interested in donating for future mission trips to Haiti, please contact Cindy Hite at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be interested in collecting jersey’s, shorts, socks, and cleats again, or of course, a monetary donation is always appreciated that would be given directly to the School of Saut D’Eau.
Way to go Ethan & Family and thanks to everyone that donated!
