May Guest Speaker: Ruben Sança
Ruben Sança will be guest speaker at our next Monthly meeting, May 11 at 7PM.
Founded by Cape Verde Olympian Ruben Sança in 2016, the Sança Foundation is a non-profit youth organization with a focus on integrating sports, academics and life skills training as driving forces to creating a positive and sustainable impact in Cabo Verde. Children ages 6 to 18 years from Ruben's hometown of Santa Maria in Cape Verde receive school supplies and old/used athletics running or walking shoes. Some additional supplies such as used book bags, notebooks, pencils can also be provided. The supplies and shoes are neatly cleaned, packed and shipped by Ruben's family from Fall River directly to Cape Verde using 55-gallon barrels. Each barrel can transport up to 50 pairs of shoes and takes about 30 days to arrive in Cape Verde. No shoe is too old to donate!
