OHS soccer program gets major donations

As many of you know, the Oregon Girls Soccer Team is a Self-funded Organization. This team has been around for 5 years now, but we are still struggling to earn the funds needed in order to have a season.

So far, we have organized a Penalty Kick Challenge, asked businesses for donations, collaborated with Hector’s Cocina, and have placed 20 donation jars in local businesses.

After the collaboration with Hector’s Cocina, they donated over half of the weekend’s earnings to support the Girls Soccer Team, and they also donated drinks for our team to sell at a school event.

We have been pretty successful with these fundraising efforts, but we were still in need of some money to have a season.

That all changed when our team earned an exceptionally generous donation of $6,000 from “Brubaker Charitable Trust” in part of Sue Brubaker.

Our team was so blown away when we found out about this donation, it truly lifted a lot of weight off of our shoulders and we cannot thank her enough.

Currently, our team now has the funds needed to have a season this year, but we still need to continue our efforts in order to continue having future seasons.

As a team, we want to thank everyone for your continued support and donations!

Without these donations, we would have never been able to have a season, so we are extremely grateful for your generosity.
