McLean Youth Soccer recently donated a truck load of equipment and supplies to DC SCORES.
DC SCORES builds teams through after-school programs for 1,500 low-income DC youth at 47 schools by instilling self-expression, physical fitness, and a sense of community. DC SCORES accomplishes this in an innovative model combining poetry and spoken word, soccer, and service-learning year-round.
Director of Operations, Carlos Fonesca, enthusiastically received the donation - "Thank you so much for the generous donation. All the equipment will be put to great use in the upcoming Spring season! With just the scrimmage vests donation we will be able to outfit 20 of our 47 schools with pinnies for practice sessions - that's about half of all our schools!"
