On behalf of Gaston United Soccer Club, we’d like to thank everyone who participated in our "Gaston United Soccer Club Gives Back" initiative. On March 4, GUSC delivered new and gently used soccer gear to a middle school in Jamaica.

Located in Santa Cruz, St. Elizabeth, Santa Cruz Primary & Junior High School received socks (donated to us by High Point-based Topsox), gear (from our friends at North Meck Soccer Club), school supplies, water coolers and draw string bags (courtesy of the Walt Disney Company). The students and administration were hugely appreciative, and the items will give their athletic program a much-needed boost. This school was chosen because a club member who grew up in Jamaica was making a scheduled family trip there, and organized the effort. If anyone would like to spearhead a similar donation drive, please let us know--and we’d be happy to rally the full club.
