Cheryl said, "It was a good night in Decatur, and people were really happy to do something to help the cause." With the help of her sons; Lucas and Sam, and her parents; Bernard and Helen Kopec, Cheryl packed up over 10 boxes of equipment for the Iraqi children! Cheryl's parents have volunteered to mail the boxes to our American soldiers this week.

Many thanks to Cheryl Kopec-Nahmias and Decatur High School for sponsoring this successful drive! And thanks too to Bernard and Helen Kopec for their help in packing and posting the many boxes of equipment! Children in Iraq will soon be playing with soccer balls and equipment donated from children in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A.!

GO TEAM - we have a new total of 3,195 soccer balls collected for the Iraqi children!
