Our Young & Free SC team is heading to Africa this week! Hopefully this sounds familiar to you. Earlier this year, we held our Water Missions International Fundraising campaign raising $16,000 for a new water treatment system for a villiage on Lake Victoria in Uganda. Darryl LaPlante and Kyle Whitcroft are heading to the village of Musubi to meet the villagers who now get to drink clean water thanks to you!
They’re bringing a duffle bag of socks, soccer balls and sunglasses with them to hand out to the 300 plus kids who live in Musubi. You can help by donating new socks at any of our branch locations this week. But, please hurry since the guys depart from the Charleston International Airport on Friday, December 2. Any extra socks they collect will be sent via Warm Feet Happy Hearts.
You can even follow Darryl and Kyle throughout their journey through our Young & Free website. Here you’ll find videos of Darryl, blog posts and photos of their journey. We can’t wait for them to return and share their great adventure with us. We’re excited to hear how the water treatment system has improved the daily lives of the villagers of Musubi.
Let’s give them a great send off by donating new socks this week and show them the love during their trip by posting comments on the Young & Free SC website. Safe travels, Darryl & Kyle!
