Soccer Balls not Guns

A parent at the University of Richmond has a son serving in Iraq and he has a request for our help. She said she has always asked him how she could be helpful to the troops, but he has never had a request until now. The military is trying to reach out to the children of Iraq through our wonderful game of soccer, but they are badly in! need of soccer balls. CVSRA would love for you to help fill this young soldier's request. We are hoping to send 200+ balls as soon as possible. They will take new or gently used balls (as long as they hold air) and any ball pumps we can come up with.

Premier Soccer at 9320 W. Broad, Richmond VA has set it up so people can call in by phone to purchase balls with a credit card for $12.00 per ball. Call 804-217-9191, please ask for Chris.

If you have used balls you can donate, please deflate them and send me an email (SBRUT@AOL.COM) or call 804-363-6553 and we can set up a collection place. You can also drop them by Premier Soccer and they will hold them for us.

If we can stop one young child from picking up a gun against our troops through this bond it will have all been worth it!! Our soldiers are counting on us!

Please know that there is no expectation for you to give if you choose not to. Please forward this email on to anyone you think might be able to help.

Yours in soccer,

Christie Bernas

CVSRA High School Commissioner
