South Delta United makes giving back a priority

Giving back to the community is a big initiative for South Delta United.

For the third consecutive year the youth soccer club held its Food Bank Drive at Dugald Morrison Park last weekend as part of its match days for boys and girls U5 to U9 teams. Non-perishable items were collected for Deltassist.

It was back in November the club also had a toy drive for the local organization.

“When the three clubs came together to form South Delta United, it was made a priority to be involved in its community beyond soccer,” explained SDU coaching staff member Russ Heggie. “It also helps to make our kids aware of the challenges within our community.”

The club not only teamed up with Deltassist but a concession stand that sold baked goods and coffee over the two days raised funds for BC and Alberta Guide Dogs. This year’s efforts generated $1,500.
