In late September Keller Williams agent Rita Ellis met with Henry Kalungi of the Richmond Kickers and had a long talk about the children of Uganda. Henry shared with her the plight of children attempting to enjoy their national sport, soccer. Many do not have shoes, clothes, or even soccer balls. So she sent out a request to Keller Williams agents in Virginia to see if others could help her by donating gently used soccer equipment.
Bedford Va agent Wendy Witt literally took the ball and ran with it. She contacted the Bedford YMCA. Who placed a notice in their newsletter. Well the response from the Bedford community was outstanding! Lots of cleats, shoes, jerseys, socks, shorts and balls were collected. Wendy picked them up and delivered them to Rita in Richmond.
Thanks to all who helped make the lives of children half way around the world better.
