Corona del Mar High School students are collecting outgrown sports jerseys, unused equipment and gently used cleats for children in the African village of Malawi.
The Just for Kicks Clubs will be collecting items through Friday with donation boxes outside room 504 at the school.
“Their mission is to collect gently used sports equipment and donate them to underprivileged children,” according to a PTA email blast. “In the past two years, they have collected over 1100 items – balls, cleats, uniforms/jerseys/shorts, sports backpacks/duffel bags, tennis racquets, lacrosse sticks, tricycles and more.”
The club donated the items through a local church to children in the village of Rojo Gomez in Mexico. This year, the club has partnered with Direct Connection to Africa to distributed items in Malawi.
