Gifts for Gulu

The Mechanicsburg Girl’s soccer team and staff had an opportunity to give back.  The girl’s and coaches participated in the second annual “Gifts for Gulu” day at Lynchburg College.  The purpose of this event according to the Sports Outreach Institute which helps to put on the annual event, “is to assist traumatized children and individuals living in the war zones of Northern Uganda by Building A New Foundation that will provide for the urgent needs of these people.”  The girls had the opportunity to participate in two scrimmages and donate old soccer uniforms which were no longer being worn.  The coaches then had the opportunity to play in a benefit game between the Charlotte Eagles and the Lynchburg Area All-Stars.To view the Gifts for Gulu flyer click here.
