Donating over 1,000 pounds in food to our communities across the United States and In Europe!
What better way to feel the Holiday Spirit than to give back to our communities, and help those in need. This was the vision when putting together the ISL Foundation Holiday Kickoff Charity Food Drive. ISL Foundation exists to improve our communities through the power of sport, and during the holidays this is even more important.
Across the United States and in Europe, ISL Foundation worked with Barca Academies, ISL Futsala Academies, and ISL Experience Trips taking place across Europe in partnering with local food banks. Families and friends of each academy and Experience Trip who took part in the initiative came together donating food, clothing, and other necessities which we often can take for granted. These goods were then delivered to partnering food banks by the Academy Directors and Coaches.
The response to the initiative was truly heartwarming. The goal of the initiative was for the young players within each Academy and Experience Trip to get involved with their families collecting goods, and in turn helping the young players understand the value of giving back to those less fortunate.
In total, the Academies and Experience Trips collected and donated over 1,000 pounds of goods to local charitable organizations. We’d like to thank all players, coaches, directors and families for helping ISL Foundation improving our communities through sport. Lastly, we thank the Salvation Army, Loaves and Fishes, the Greater Chicago Food Depository and every organization for their help and all that they do not just during the Holidays, but all year.
