On Satur­day, Oct. 4, 10 of Rock­dale Youth Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion’s (RYSA) finest will be leav­ing the U.S. and trav­el­ing to Haiti for a seven-day mis­sion trip. The group will be pro­vid­ing soc­cer day camps for chil­dren, school sup­plies, feed­ing a vil­lage and many other things. RYSA needs help to col­lect items they will need to make this trip a suc­cess for the chil­dren of Haiti.

Make all checks payable to Haitian Christian Mis­sion; they are tax-de­ductible. Items needed: used cleats adult sizes five to 14, new or used book bags, pen­cils, crayon, mark­ers, pro­tein bars and pow­dered packs of Ga­torade. All Items need to be turned in by Sun­day, Sept. 28. “It’s kind of surreal when you’re over there and a kid runs by you and they’re wear­ing a RYSA jersey,” Rafe Mau­ran said.

You can turn in th­ese items to the RYSA of­fice dur­ing reg­u­lar hours. It is open Mon­day through Fri­day from 12:30 to 5 p.m. On Tues­days and Thurs­days they will be there un­til 7 p.m. Over the week­end, you can turn in items to the con­ces­sion stands while games are be­ing played.

“Thank you in ad­vance for your help,” RYSA says in a news re­lease. “With the support of our RYSA fam­ily, we can en­sure that we have a pos­i­tive im­pact on those that need it most. Let's make sure that th­ese kids feel the love from here in Ge­or­gia all the way to Haiti!”
