'Tis the Season... for TF Community Service
Community Service Math: 29 Players + 3 Coaches = 274 Sandwiches
Question: What do you get when 27 Total Futbol players, three coaches and a handful of parents come together in TF Event Coordinator Shirl Sayadian's kitchen on a Saturday afternoon in December? Answer: Hundreds of sandwiches for Martha's Table, of course.
In the spirit of holiday giving, our players spent the afternoon of December 12 making sandwiches and then delivered 274 of them to the D.C.-based nonprofit organization the very same day (plus three large jars of jelly and six large jars of peanut butter). Martha's Table was established in 1968 to increase access to healthy starts, healthy eating, and healthy connections for children and families in need in the Washington, DC area. Many thanks to the sandwich crew!
Cornerstones' Winter Coat Closet Drive Nets 29 Gently Used TF Coats
On December 13, Total Futbol delivered 29 gently used coats (including a black sparkly one!) and dozens of new mittens, gloves and hats to the Winter Coat Closet clothing drive run by Cornerstones, a Reston, VA nonprofit organization that promotes self-sufficiency by providing support and advocay for those in need of food, shelter, affordable housing, quality childcare and other human services.
Many thanks to Shirl, who masterminded these (and all other) Total Futbol community service projects!
