Good cause soccerlearning - About the only good news we have heard for a while. Hope the kids enjoy themselves and generates a few smiles on their faces. Hope the girls get to kick the ball around to.

Hi JCListers,

Just wanted to thank everyone - we have been able to collect 300 soccer balls to benefit Iraqi children (our goal was 200).

We'll be at the JC City Hall today at 4:15 pm for a press conference with the mayor and we'll present the donation to the family of the Army soldier stationed in Iraq who will be distributing the balls.

The Jersey Journal has indicated their interest in doing a story on the drive, too.

Thanks again for your kindness and generosity...

Thanks for the support everyone. We've got six days left and we're still a long way off from our goal.

FGD - The box is in the lobby of city hall on Grove Street - walk in the front door and ask the security guard to point out the box. If you can't make it there, please email me at soccerlearning@aol.com for alternatives.

And yes, FAB - as soon as I can get photos of the distribution, I'll post them here.

What a great idea! I'll be over later today with my contribution. Where's the box in City Hall? I've never been in there.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for your support. We're going to buy pumps to include in the shipment. If you want to drop one in the box along with your ball, that would be great, too!

The ball drive is featured in today's Jersey Journal:

Soccer Balls for Soldiers

I'll be in that - what about a pump for the balls and can we have photos on JClist when they arrive and distributed ?

We are helping out an Army soldier stationed in Iraq whose Dad (a really great guy) lives in Jersey City. The soldier is in need of soccer balls to distribute to children in the village where his unit is stationed. We have jumped on board with the goal of collecting 200 new soccer balls (any size, any brand) by November 8th. The balls will be shipped directly to the soldier's unit.

Mayor Jerramiah Healy has already kicked in ten balls to our effort and helped establish a donation site at City Hall.

We need every ball we can get to reach our goal. You can drop off a new soccer ball in the lobby at City Hall on Grove Street today through Friday, November 7th.

For more information or for other local donation sites, please contact Coach Alex Lalaoui at 201-920-8523.

Thanks JCListers - I know you guys have big hearts to help!
