Collingwood City has taken another step forward today in becoming a club for the entire community by pushing forward the CCFC Boot Drive. The donations of all sizes will go to benefit not only less fortunate members of our own council, but children across the world who have a desire to play the beautiful game. The drive will run until the end of this season and is open to all members of the community, not just those who are part of the CCFC Family. Please bring in any soccer boots that are clean and still in good condition to the club at any point during your child's training or matches.
Collingwood City will operate this drive in conjunction with the Reagan Milstein Foundation. The foundation began in 2010 in order to assist less fortunate children in Australia, Tonga, Vanuatu, Vietnam and many other countries. These initiatives range from sponsoring talented youngsters, providing football equipment to various less fortunate football associations, developing football programs and matches in conjunction with Football Federation Victoria and various Victorian football clubs to promote social activity through football, and the initiative we are currently participating in, the recycling of donated boots as well as pre-loved and unused uniforms for redistribution to children that cannot afford them.
