This is the official fundraising page for the Bowdoin Men's Soccer team. Will Herman, Alex Chaban, and Owen Wolfson will be participating in a FIFA tournament against the other NESCAC teams to raise money for the organization Family Promise. The organization looks to provide meals for underprivleged and impoverished communities, a mission which is that much more important in these trying times (more information below). 100% of all donations will go directly to the organization, and every dollar raised helps our chances in the tournament itself. The link below is for the event's Facebook page, where you can find more information about the tournament, including the game schedule and streaming information.
More information on Family Promise:
One in seven adults in the U.S. lives in official poverty; approximately 40% of all households are unable to cover an unexpected $400 expense. Those who already live in, or on the edge of poverty, will be hit the hardest and it is likely, if not definite, that we will see increases in homelessness, evictions, and food insecurity. With the closing of schools, many low-income families struggle even more. Nearly 30 million children depend on schools for meals, and between 2.5 and 3 million children are identified as homeless nationally. Additionally, conducting virtual classes compounds the challenges those students face and is not a realistic option for many low-income and unstably-housed children.With this new outbreak, many low-income families are facing unprecedented challenges through the loss of wages, childcare, food transportation, and more.
Thank you in advance for your generous contribution and support.
