If your Region is looking to give back to your community in ways other than providing world-class youth soccer, consider turning your next picture day into a food drive.
Locate a local charity to partner with and ask families to bring at least one can of food with them on picture day.
AYSO Region 144 in South Irvine, Calif., partnered with local charity Families Forward
and did a picture day/food drive this September. "We feel this will not only help this wonderful organization and its members, it will also be a rewarding experience for the children bringing the food," shared RC Alan Sadeghi. "With over 1,800 players, I hope we can fill up their entire pantry."
