Colleton County High School Athletics recently donated an old set of Cougar soccer uniforms to the Ghana Project, an effort by the South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association to collect used uniforms for distribution in Accra, Ghana.
As part of the on-going project, used soccer and basketball uniforms are being donated and sent to Accra for distribution to youth who take part in sports programs. The effort, led by Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) staff member Vincent Asamoah, encourages coaches and athletic directors to look in their equipment rooms for uniforms that can be donated. The project is also accepting basketballs and soccer *****.
Cougar Soccer Coach Shane Fidler said the donation of the old uniforms was made possible since the Cougars received new uniforms last season. “I donated an old set of boys’ varsity uniforms, since the athletic program was gracious enough to buy us new ones last season,” said Fidler. “Jody McMillan was nice enough to deliver the uniforms to Dale Reeves of FCA, while he was working with the Southern Baptist Convention helping on Edisto after Hurricane Matthew.” For more information on the Ghana Project, visit the Christ Through Sports web page or the FCA website.
