members of the Valley East Soccer Club have come up with an
initiative that may very well form the "identity" of the
Club for many years to come.
Langlois, shown in the centre of the photo to the left, is serving
his second term as Past President. He and his wife, Cathy, on the
right, were talking one day about how it would be nice to organize a
food drive during the playoff weekend of the Valley East Soccer
Club. They decided to give it a try since it wouldn't involve much
work and would be a good way of "giving back" to the
Annie Rose, President of the Club heard about the couple's plans,
she put her full support behind the initiative and now the entire
Club is eagerly looking forward to seeing just how successful this
drive can be.
food can be dropped off at the Valley East soccer complex in distinguishable
bins from Friday, August 12 to Sunday, August 14, 2011. The food
will go to the Sudbury Food Bank which will then distribute it to
all of the Food Banks in the City of Greater Sudbury. With over 1600
children and adults registered in the Valley East Soccer Club, the
group is anticipating that anywhere from 1000 to 3000 items may be
collected during the weekend.
the Valley East Soccer Club is doing is clearly something that is
consistent with what the TRUE SPORT MOVEMENT is all about, and
True Sport Community Animator for Northern Ontario, Robert Kirwan,
is going to make sure that this if the First Annual Event in a long
history of successful food drives. Complete details can be found in
the video presentation that follows.
