Today is the anniversary of the earthquake that rocked Port-au-Prince in Haiti. I thought I'd share some photos of the collection of used soccer equipment that you, the Huntsville soccer community, so graciously donated in conjunction with the Haiti Food Drive.

A few months ago, my wife and I drove the donations down to Decatur to meet the Warehouse Supervisor Ray who catalogs and readies all donations for transport to on-site locations. We spent a few hours with Ray helping around the warehouse and got an idea of just how much help is needed in Haiti. He was truly excited about the soccer equipment donations and thought it would be a great thing for those in need.

I'd been meaning to share these for a while now and the anniversary seemed like an appropriate time to do so.
