Soccer and Keeping Warm!

Help me give my students these jackets in order to keep my students warm. We are about to start our soccer season, and these hoodies will help our players build a sense of pride and professionalism.

My Students

Predominately lower-income Hispanics make up eighty-five percent of our school. Many live in multi-family homes where extended families share one small house. We are in the highest bracket for free or reduced-price lunch in our district. Our school district gave free lunch to every student through October, to help reduce expenses as we rebuild, due to the natural disaster (Hurricane Harvey). Every single student was impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Two days after the worst of the storm, our team started volunteering to local assistance groups such as the Red Cross. Dozens of students came up to help distribute clothes, meals, or play with children.

My Project

These jackets will give us the opportunity to practice for our soccer matches in complete uniforms. Recently, Houston has experienced some of the coldest weather, and as of now we have to borrow the soccer balls from our high school team in order to simply practice. These supplies will help our middle school team gain confidence in themselves. All of our supplies are handed down from the high school team, and they have not seen new uniforms or training equipment in recent years.

These jackets will lift our team morale, allow us to keep warm and build a sense of pride.

One thing I like to tell my athletes is to always look professional on and off of the field.

They would be able to hold on to their hoodies for the complete season. All of our players will experience a strong feeling of school pride. We want them to gain that sense. This will bring a different aspect to our group and assist with characteristics. One small detail could change the whole array of our school culture.
