David Bascome and his Hope4Life organization are asking Blast fans to please bring new or used soccer balls and other soccer equipment to the Blast vs. Wings game on the 16th.
Fans who bring soccer balls will be asked to throw the balls onto the playing field during the first quarter break, uniting fans in a powerful show of humanitarianism and goodwill for kids.
Everything collected will be distributed among needy children in Africa, Mexico and Guatemala.
All donated soccer equipment other than balls (shin guards, jerseys, shorts, shoes, etc.) will be collected at the doors upon entrance to 1st Mariner Arena.
