Earlier this month, the College donated about 100 soccer uniforms, more than 50 backpacks and several warm-up outfits to Pascal Millien, a professional soccer player who runs A Millien Dreams Foundation in Leogane, Haiti.
The clothing and backpacks were donated as part of a service-learning project called “Get Fit” that students at Polk State Chain of Lakes Collegiate High School took on late last year.
The donated items all bore the College’s old logo, so they wouldn’t have been used by players again.
“The kids are going to be so excited. These are kids who don’t have anything. I am very grateful that Polk State did this,” Millien said.
Thanks again for all you do to make Polk State awesome!!!
