Warrington Soccer Club and the Apartment Association of Greater Philadelphia are pleased to announce the kickoff of Soccer 4 Soldiers 4v4 soccer festival. The festival’s goal is to provide a day of soccer and fun while supporting Operation Homefront (OH).
OH is a charitable organization that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors. Through widespread public support and a collaborative team of exceptional staff and volunteers, their sole aim is to become the provider of choice for emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors. Where there is a need that OH cannot provide they will partner with others for the benefit of our military families.
An providing help to these families and veterans is a costly job and one that should be supported by any organization and that’s why the Warrington Soccer Club along with the Apartment Association of Greater Philadelphia have teamed up to sponsor Soccer 4 Soldiers.
Soccer 4 Soldiers is a day long 4v4 soccer festival for boys and girls ages 7 – 15. This proceeds raised through registration and donations will all go to support the Pennsylvania and Delaware Chapter of Operation Homefront.
The festival is broken into two halves with the younger kids playing their games before lunch and the older kids after. The day is capped off with a coaches versus veterans game that will be the highlight of the festival. In addition to the festival there will be carnival games and concessions for everyone who just wants to stick around and aid a very good cause.
