Hassan Touray, who is from Gambia, and Chris Mackey were discussing how blessed our children are to be playing soccer with the best equipment, facilities and organizations. Hassan discussed the children in Gambia and their lack of the same, which led us to this small part in giving back.
There are a lot of organizations on the internet that you can join or donate sports equipment. The challenge is trust; who are they? is your donation getting to the children? Hassan knows of local youth directors in Gambia that would take donations to benefit themselves. So here we are – asking for your donations so Hassan and his colleagues in Gambia can ensure the children receive those donations.
Hassan Touray has a U13 daughter at GTFC Impact and a U11 son at Toledo Celtics. Chris Mackey has a U13 son at MI Wolves, a U11 son at Toledo Celtics and a U8 daughter at Ottawa Hills Dynamo.
