Manhattan Azul y Oro is a non-profit organization that since 2014 has helped kids in need here in the U.S and also in Argentina. Our organization was born from the combination of our passion for soccer (most specifically the Argentinian club Boca Juniors) and the desire of helping kids that have a difficult situation. Every year we celebrate our anniversary with our biggest fundraising where we bring soccer players as special guests and we do raffles with signed T-shirts, shoes, etc. With the money raised from these events, we have been able to provide some relief to many kids. This year unfortunately due to COVID 19 we had to cancel the event in order to prioritize the safety, and we are not able to reschedule due to the difficulty of the soccer players' schedule. The place we had saved for the event "The Palisadium" (700 Palisadium dr Cliffside park NJ) with a deposit of $2600 does not want to refund the money and we are still fighting because It is truly a shame the inflexibility given the circumstances and the characteristics of our organization.
We know how hard this year has been for all of us but we need your help. We have been working with other organizations to put together a computer lab in Jersey City. The goal is to re-educate through technology kids between the age of 9-15 years old in Hudson County. These kids are mostly victims of violence or have been unattended by their parents. We hope with this lab to awake interest for technology alongside for a career.
We need support to buy computers and school supplies for these kids. Every dollar counts and helps more than you can imagine. We are hoping
to launch the lab on September 17th, so every bit of help is welcome.
