Staples Soccer Gives Back To Shehan Center

Two big events highlight the upcoming Staples boys soccer calendar.

There’s the Turkey Bowl Thanksgiving morning (10 a.m., Wakeman turf — all alumni and current varsity players invited!), and the banquet (December 4, 5 p.m., Norwalk Inn).

But in between, there’s another very important date.

This year, as part of the “Staples Soccer Gives Back initiative, the program is collecting donations for the Cardinal Shehan Center in Bridgeport. The Center runs after-school, vacation and summer camps for low-income families and youth. They need new and gently used sports equipment, arts and crafts supplies, games and toys to help in their mission of enriching lives through learning.

All donations will be delivered by players to the Center, in time for their annual holiday party on December 17.

Donations can be made Friday through Sunday, December 2-4, at the Laskins’ home (1 Baldwin Place, off Bayberry Lane). There will be bins by the garage.

Suggested items include:

Soccer balls, dodgeballs, basketballs
Plastic hockey sticks
Air Hockey Table and supplies
Ping Pong table and supplies
Complete board games with intact boxes and all pieces
Children or family DVDs
Unopened arts & crafts supplies
Unopened toys for holiday gifts
Gift cards
Hats, scarves and gloves
Swim goggles

Staples soccer has much to be grateful for this holiday season. We’re honored to share our bounty with others.
