FC TUCSON AND VISIT TUCSON PARTNER WITH ARIZONA NON-PROFIT PASS IT ON
FC Tucson’s commitment to community health is represented through its partnership with Visit Tucson and an Arizona teen to bring Pass It On to Southern Arizona.
FC Tucson will be collecting donations at every home match for the 2022 season. Attendees can bring new and gently-worn gear and sports clothing to collection bins which will be distributed to kids in need.
“This alliance is a unique opportunity for our community to come together and eliminate the barriers facing kids who would love to play youth sports,” said FC Tucson President Amanda Powers. “Tucson is one of the most generous communities I’ve ever been a part of, and we’re excited to play our part in helping to keep kids active and healthy.”
Pass It On is an Arizona non-profit organization that collects new and gently-used sports equipment and clothing for children in need. They’ve given the equipment to a variety of organizations; see http://passitonsoccer.net/events for snapshot of past events and donations.
Wade Crum, now 16 and a soccer player for Phoenix Rising Youth, founded Pass It On when he was 13. He was inspired to create his nonprofit after wanting to donate his own soccer clothing and equipment to kids who need it and not finding an organization dedicated to that mission.
