On Saturday, September 26, 2015, more than 130 soccer balls were donated and over $4,000 raised at the annual Yarmouth Colts tournament in Yarmouth, Maine to benefit Safe Passage programs in Guatemala City!

Local Maine soccer teams worked together to raise awareness and funds for Safe Passage, and many players donated one or more soccer balls. The soccer balls will travel to our program in Guatemala where Safe Passage students can use them during sports activities! A great big thank you to everyone who participated and made this donation possible.
