This Holiday Season the Valeo Futbol Foundation sent holiday care packages to the Burnt Savanna United Youth Club in the small town of Santa Cruz, Jamaica. The club is a community-run organization who aim to enhance and embrace the success of peace, unity and togetherness among the Santa Cruz community.
We visited with the elderly and gave them care packages and had gifts, treats and fun activities for the kids. Gary Johnson, the President of the Club, said that it was a great feeling for him and for the club to see the kids having fun and the smiles on their faces when they received their gifts. "We are in a rural area and so we are at a socioeconomic disadvantage", said Mr. Johnson, "so things like this are good for the people of this community."
