Last month, CrossTraining announced the Timothy Project: Liberia 2015 and the goal of Liberian Institute for Empowerment (L.I.F.E.) to fill a shipping container from Colorado to send to Liberia with soccer equipment and school supplies. Currently, CrossTraining has been able to collect over 500 pieces of soccer equipment including Colorado Rapids jerseys, cones, training vests, backpacks, and cleats for the container project.
L.I.F.E.’s mission is to assist in meeting the basic need of the children, youth, and the elders in the Gola Konneh district through the container project. L.I.F.E. continues to collect school supplies, text books, soccer equipment and other basic necessities in an effort to fill the 40-foot container. The hope and intention was to ship the container by mid-October in order for the shipment to arrive in December; however, L.I.F.E. has encountered several challenges including:
- needing to completely fill the container: L.I.F.E. is still accepting donations for school supplies, text books, soccer balls, and nonperishable food items to finish filling the container.
- cost of shipping the container: L.I.F.E. needs to raise another $6500 to pay for the shipping of the items to Monrovia.
