Santa Barbara Soccer Club has made a donation of used soccer uniforms to the Chad Relief Foundation. A representative of the foundation, Mary Louise Scully said that the donation “will make many children very happy in southern Chad [because] Soccer is one of the only bright spots in their lives”. In fact the Chad Relief Foundation has a history of incorporating soccer into relief efforts. The foundation sponsored the building of a soccer field for the school near the refugee camps and they hope to build another in a different area for local children. “Clothes of any sort are welcome, uniforms will be amazing”, said Scully.
