Partners for Care Newsletter – October 2011
Below is the Partners for Care newsletter highlighting our friends, the Peace Passers organization. Peace Passers is a non-profit headed up by Candace Cooper-Murray, a nurse and Community Development /Health Administration professional in Charlotte, NC.
Peace Passers’ mission is to use a collaborative approach to collect and distribute soccer supplies to people and communities throughout the world. Peace Passers supports team development and the funding of sustainable sports league play to empower youth & maximize hope for all participants locally and globally.
Through a friend of Bridgette Boylan’s, Partners for Care recently connected with Peace Passers to receive donated soccer equipment and gear for the children of Kenya. Within a few days of making the request, several large containers arrived at Connie’s home filled to the brim with practically new soccer balls, shoes, jerseys, shorts, and shinguards in all sorts of sizes and colors! Connie took the shipment with her on her most recent trip to Kenya. It’s an understatement to say that the children were delighted to open it all up and couldn’t wait to play soccer with their new things!
