Soccer Balls for Africa
In Africa it is common for kids to use whatever it takes to make a soccer ball. Plastic bags, socks, you name it, I bet a kid has made a soccer ball from it. Most kids, however, long to have a real soccer ball to play with.
Antioch's fifth grade students and teachers have decided to help out with this issue and are partnering with World Vision, a humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. The fifth grade team is sponsoring a fundraiser where you gather up loose change or donations and for every $16.00 raised they will send two soccer balls over to Africa.
