Contributions from Becky & Bob in Sacramento, CA
Becky & Bob Connolly are the proud parents of Army Ranger Matthew Connolly, who has already served our country for a year in Iraq. Bob is a soccer player and he put a poster up in a local soccer arena. Together they have been collecting and sending balls and equipment to the 101st Airborne for over a year now. When Becky and Bob heard about Eric's Goal they decided to send some of the donations his way. The first shipment was sent a few days ago and consisted of jerseys, shorts, jackets, balls, shin guards, and goalie gloves. According to Becky, help comes from others. She says, "we couldn't do it without the local community of soccer families and their donations."
The Sacramento contributions bring our total up to 1,825 soccer balls!!!!!!!
Thanks Becky & Bob and the Sacramento community for your constant support of our troops!
And thank you Matthew for your continued service to our country!
