There are nearly 500 youngsters enrolled in the 2013 South Dundas Soccer Association.
With so many players, from Little Squirts to teenage Kickers, the Association relies on the support of community businesses and organizations to keep the young players playing.
This year, Angie Morrow, manager of Mac’s Convenience in Iroquois, was able to present the SDSA with a kit worth $500, on the opening day of the World Cup.
“Mac’s, along with other businesses, put together $50,000 to donate to soccer clubs in Canada,” Angie Morrow explained. “The funds were turned into 110 soccer-coach kits for local communities.”
Morrow learned about the kits from Mac’s internal web site and decided that she would apply for one.
“In June I learned that I had been awarded a kit, and I decided to present it to South Dundas Soccer.”
Each kit contains a variety of things from balls, bags and water bottles to coupons, to a total of $500. “I have known Angie a long time,” said Steve Bygott, president of SDSA. “She always supports our soccer players. We are very grateful, and very happy about this generous gift from Mac’s Convenience Stores.”
