Join the Liverpool FC International Academy MA family this holiday season as we come together in support of our two local charitable partners - South Shore Community Action Council's Food Resources Program and The Jordan Hospital Club/Fragile Footprints - for our second annual Holiday Drive.
Fragile Footprints Secret Santa
Fragile Footprints is a pediatric palliative program sponsored by BID-Plymouth and Cranberry Hospice, and provides services to medically fragile children and their families. Each of our teams have signed up to serve as a Secret Santa for one Fragile Footprints patient. Your coach will have the name and age of the patient so that they can pick up an age-appropriate gift. Please keep the gifts unwrapped per hospital request.
Looking to do more? The needs of Fragile Footprints children put a terrible financial strain on the families and often gift cards, including grocery stores, are what the families need.
Back Pack Food For Kids
SSCAC's Food Resources Program has been helping school children get the nutritious and easy-to-prepare food they need to get enough to eat on the weekends through their Back Pack Food For Kids, an initiative within their Food Resources Program. We are asking our players, coaches, and families to sponsor a backpack and provide the items below:
- Heat & Eat Meals
- Peanut Butter & Jelly (Plastic Bottles)
- Cereal (Small Boxes)
- Canned Soup (or Stew)
- Granola Bars
- Pretzels/Gold Fish (Small Bags)
- Pudding Cups
- Canned Peaches/Pears
- Fruit Snacks/Fruit Roll Ups
- Macaroni & Cheese
- Canned Vegetables
Last year, we collected over 14,000 pounds of food while providing gifts to more than 20 Fragile Footprint children and their families. Our members ensured that many people in our community had a happier holiday and we look forward to sharing the joy again this December.
Donations for this year's drive can be dropped off at our Club Offices and various club events between Monday, November 21 - Monday, December 12, 2016. Due to timing, no donations can be accepted after December 12.

Thank you in advance for your support as we celebrate the holiday season!
