“CLEATS IN THE STREET”
FC Georgia United presented the John Hope Center ‘Soccer In The Streets’ program with 38 pairs of new soccer cleats for their start-up program.
The children were extremely excited to receive their new boots – as chaos erupted when they were shown their surprises in the boxes.
Soccer In The Streets “reaches out to teens who are on the margins of society – racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants and refugees – attending low-performing public schools, from low-income and broken homes, in high-crime areas, with high unemployment, (communities without many job prospects except low paying service jobs) facing “healthy food deserts” and experiencing minimal quality of life”.
