Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)– The Midwest Wings Soccer Club, which is made up of about 100 young soccer players between the ages of seven and fifteen years of age, rallied behind one of their own, Nashika Nenonene, who is from Haiti and a teammate of the Midwest Wings U9 Girls Team. Nashika’s Mother, Mona Zephir, has her brother and sister living in Port Au Prince Haiti and has not had word from them since the earthquake. Mona did receive a call from someone saying they survived the quake, but that is all she has heard despite calling and trying to find out if they are okay.
Eurosport, the Midwest Wings soccer supplier, teamed up with the Red Cross to donate Haiti T-Shirts for each $18 spent, and the Midwest Wings families went to work selling and raising $3,500, 100% of which is donated to the Red Cross for the Haiti Relief Fund.
Every member of the Midwest Wings Soccer Club supported this effort and the Midwest Wings are proud to give $3,500 from this small but mighty group of young people!
Once the t-shirts arrive, the club will take a photo in these t-shirts which will be used to encourage other groups to continue the support and learn through our fortunate lives we have power in numbers and youth groups like this one can make a major impact in the world today
