LBHS juniors Rory Saunders and Chris Tellez are asking parents and students to start spring cleaning early by donating old soccer jerseys and other gear at collection boxes in Laguna skills by Friday, Dec 21.
The boys established Score 4 the Poor as a community service project two years ago and have collected over 1,000 soccer jerseys that have been sent to El Salvador, Mexico and Honduras.
Another local, Dave Day, founder of the nonprofit Growers First, personally delivered the uniforms. “Rory and Chris have outfitted the children of five villages so far with uniforms. They are doing global work.”
The students hope to travel themselves with Day this February to distribute the donations and conduct soccer clinics for the children of Honduras.
