Worthy Cause Countdown: This High School Soccer Team Needs Just $131 For Equipment [UPDATED]

NOTE FROM THE EDITORS: THIS GOAL HAS BEEN MET!  BUT YOU CAN GIVE TO ANOTHER WORTHY CAUSE HERE.

From December 14 through December 25, GOOD Sports each day will feature  the worthiest school athletic programs in need of funding. 

Hillside High School in Durham, North Carolina, is a Title I school, meaning a large percentage of its students are from low-income families. 

Among the school’s underfunded programs is the girls soccer team, whose coach has been paying out of pocket for basic equipment like gloves and pinnies. The coach, Durham native Jokrya Scott, is working with donorschoose.org to change that.

As of Wednesday, the team still needs $131 of its total goal of $381 to cover the costs of new gloves, pinnies, cones, and other equipment. 

Scott, who also teaches at the school and has been coaching the team for 10 years, notes the impact the equipment could have:

Please consider supporting this project—and the 40 students who will be directly impacted—or another school athletic program in need.

Editor’s note: Some projects listed on donorschoose.org have donations matched by Dick’s Sporting Goods, which is a non-editorial presenting partner of GOOD Sports.
