On Sunday, April 21st, Athletes C.A.R.E. hosted its first-ever Kicking4Hunger Soccer Clinic in which children were asked to bring canned food items as their fee to participate in the clinic. These items were then donated to the Nazareth Food Bank of Lehigh Valley to benefit the needy, hungry, and homeless. The clinic was extremely successful, raising over 400 canned food items with 70 kids participating in the day’s event! Check out our media page to look at more pictures from the day! We look forward to making the Kicking4Hunger Clinic an annual event!
As part of our continued efforts to serve the needy, hungry, and homeless, we will be running a Kicking4Hunger Event hosted at the Metzgar Athletic Complex of Lafayette College. The soccer clinic will take place on Sunday, April 21st from 1pm to 4pm, taught by Lafayette College Men’s and Women’s Soccer Players. The clinic is open to children ages 5 to 11. Here’s how it works: Instead of paying a fee to participate in the clinic, it is asked that children and their families bring canned food items as their cost to participate. These food items will then be donated directly to a Lehigh Valley Area Food Bank to help those in need. It’s pretty simple! Children get to learn from and play with Division I soccer players in a 3 hour clinic of all sorts of fun and games…and all they have to do is bring canned food to help the community! It’s truly and awesome cause and we certainly hope to see you or your children at the day’s event. Sign up your child by clicking the ‘SIGN UP’ link below. All information regarding the time, date, and location are listed below.
DATE: Sunday, April 21st
TIME: 1pm to 4pm
