GC Centennials Hold Drive To Help Victims Of Sandy
Under bright skies on Saturday November 17th, the Garden City centennial Soccer Club held a drive at St. Paul’s for those in need as a result of super-storm Sandy. The Club completed its final intramural soccer clinics and games Saturday while players and parents of Garden City made donations throughout the day.
The Clubs Board of directors, along with our travel and Adelphi soccer players, collected two busloads of food, cleaning supplies and clothing which were sorted by many volunteers before heading for distribution. Led by Paul Bernieri and Adelphi Men’s Soccer Coach Carlo Acquista, the bus made multiple runs down to the South Shore, making donations to the American Legion and VFW in Broad Channel, then continuing to multiple shelters in the Rockaways. We wrapped up Sunday by delivering much needed clothing and food to the St. Anthony’s Sandy Relief Center in Oceanside. It proved to be a total team effort where Garden City’s soccer community delivered.
