After being contacted by a South African Youth Soccer coach, who explained that his young players needed sports equipment in any condition, Nonnewaug High School sports teams spearheaded a drive for used equipment. Thanks to other district schools and the Region 14 Board of Education, the district was able to send cases of used equipment to the teams located in a township near Capetown. The coach explained the area was very poor and sports helped to keep the students motivated and out of trouble. Young South African soccer players pose in their Nonnewaug shirts.
