Alexander Janczewski soccer cleat drive

My name is Alexander Janczewski (Year 9) from the Upper School and an old boy from the Prep. I’m very passionate about soccer and helping others and I am organizing a soccer cleat drive from now until December 13 for needy children in Mexico.  

This Christmas, I’ll be traveling with my family to Mexico and personally deliver all donations.  I’ve been there before and I noticed the high level of poverty in some areas.  I’m collecting soccer cleats since soccer is a sport children play in rural areas.  In addition, many of these children likely won’t receive any presents during the holidays. When I was in Year 6, I organized a soccer cleat drive and with the help of the UCC community, I was able to help over a hundred boys and girls in Mexico.

If you wish to contribute, please drop off your new or gently used soccer cleats from now until Dec.13 in the bin across from the Prep reception area. All sizes are accepted.  

On behalf of the children of Michoacan, I appreciate and thank you for your support.
