Annual Giving Campaign
Thanksgiving - Black Friday - Cyber Monday
December 3rd, 2019
After a weekend busy with eating, visiting and shopping
Tuesday is dedicated to Giving.
On December 3rd, Chargers Soccer Club is proud to participate in #GivingTuesday. This global day of giving invites individuals to celebrate the holiday season by giving back and creating change in their communities and the world. And what better way is to support our children in need. Together, we can make a difference in our children's lives by bringing the game to families who cannot afford to play.
As a non-profit organization, your donation to the Chargers Soccer Club will support children with severe financial needs.
For more than 40 years, the Chargers have brought the game of soccer to the youth of the Tampa Bay area.
But Here's The Deal:
To us, the game is much more than just learning to play a game. It's always been about bringing together children of all abilities and backgrounds to use the game we love to teach meaningful life lessons about teamwork and friendship and personal characteristics like integrity, honesty, dedication & commitment.
We believe that no child should be turned away just because their families cannot afford it.
So, each year, we ask generous folks like you to help provide scholarship aid for many of these children's soccer expenses.
What's the Bottom Line?
Sadly, 120-160 of our 2,500 families each year cannot afford extra things like sports for their kids.
And your donation, no matter how big or small, will go a long way to helping!!
Because the families are financially vetted, it is sad to see that many of them must struggle with basic life needs like keeping a roof over their heads or food on the table. And no matter how hard they work, there is nothing left over for key youth activities.
Some families have had severe illnesses like cancer in their immediate families which have wiped out their savings.
Some come to us while dealing with battered spouse or other dangerous situations and in order to protect the kids, parent(s) flee to a local shelter or the couch of a friend just to keep their kids safe. And while trying to get their family's lives back in order, they can't afford extra things like soccer.
Some parents have lost their jobs or their one income is needed to support multiple generations of their family.
Some families have had to care for elderly parents with special medical and nursing home needs that take up the little extra money they may have for youth activities.
By donating, you will not only be helping some great kids in need, but you will also receive a tax-deductible receipt that you can use for your 2019 taxes.
If you work or own a company that offers company matches for their employee donations, please reach out to me, and I'll work with you to provide all that is needed for your company to complete the match!!
If you know of a company that would like to donate as well, please pass this on to them or provide their contact information to me, and I'll be happy to contact them directly.
Thank you for supporting the Chargers Soccer Club kids!!
