Globall Giving Partnership

by TGR | Jun 29, 2015

As a community-focused, nonprofit youth soccer organization, we not only provide the best soccer experience for our community's youth but we use our resources to provide the best overall experience for them as well.

Because of this focus, we align with and promote many Milwaukee area youth-based community organizations. One of the organizations we partner with is Globall Giving.

Globall Giving is a 501(c)3 nonprofit located in Milwaukee dedicated to providing 'each child a chance to play' by collecting new and gently used sporting equipment, apparel and footwear and donating it to deserving kids, both in the U.S. and around the globe. While the organization once only serviced those living in impoverished, desolate areas of the world, the mission now provides assistance for youth living in impoverished parts of major Metropolitan communities (including Milwaukee) as well as those living hundreds of thousands of miles away. 
 

Globall Giving's founder, staff and board of directors feels that sports is far more than a soccer ball or cleats; sports teaches confidence, patience, dedication and team work. Further, by engaging in sports, children are less likely to engage in violence and drug use or become sexually active at a young age, and the teachings of a healthy lifestyle are best implemented at a young age for good health as an adult. The organization believes that the joy that sports brings is like no other feeling and wants each child to feel that sense of joy and accomplishment. 

Our partnership with Globall Giving includes providing a collection site at our home, Uihlein Soccer Park (USP), for gently used sporting equipment for participants visiting the park. Further, we ourselves are committed to donating game play equipment and game support equipment, like water coolers, to the organization for deserving kids. In addition, we support Globall Giving awareness and donations via MKSC and USP events and communications.  

We look forward to a growing partnership with Globall Giving as the organization shares our love of soccer with children from sea to shining sea.
