Heartfelt Thanks from Yaguars SSC: A Successful Equipment Donation

In a recent collaboration with Second Kicks, the Yaguars Sports and Social Club (YSSC) has successfully distributed soccer uniforms and equipment to children in the Niagara region, thanks to the generous donations from our supporters.

Liliana Jimenez, the Director of Yaguars SSC, shared her gratitude, saying, "We would like to thank you for the uniforms that you gave us; I was able to deliver them to the children last week... They loved it." This donation has provided jerseys, shorts, and gloves to many young soccer enthusiasts, bringing joy and excitement to their games.

Yaguars SSC, established in 2019, is a non-profit organization that uses sports and cultural activities to promote integration and community cohesion among Niagara Region residents. The club primarily serves newcomers, visible minorities, and individuals experiencing marginalization or mental health challenges. By offering opportunities for social, recreational, and cultural engagement, Yaguars SSC helps its members immerse themselves in Canadian society and contribute to healthier communities.

With a growing number of 100 children between the ages of 3 to 14 participating in their summer soccer program, the need for equipment was pressing. "On behalf of the children, parents, and volunteers from Yaguars SSC, we want to express our sincere gratitude for your support!! The jerseys, shorts, and gloves that you gave us have new owners and they loved it!!" Liliana expressed.

This donation drive has not only provided the necessary gear for the children to play soccer but has also fostered a sense of belonging and community spirit. Although there were some challenges with sizing, Liliana ensured that every child received something from Second Kicks, showcasing the inclusive ethos of both organizations.

Second Kicks is proud to support such meaningful initiatives and looks forward to continuing its mission to provide soccer equipment to disadvantaged communities across Canada.
