Verbum Dei High School Football Boost

Organized by: Phillip Perez

THE STORY:

The young men of Verbum Dei are the hardest working high school guys you will ever meet. They ask for nothing but respect and are willing to earn the respect each and every day. I have worked with many of these young men over the years in Los Angeles as part of the corporate work study program and interact with others as part of serving on the Corporate Work Study Board and the Verbum Dei High School Advisory Board. These young men are determined and dedicated but are facing odds. For me - participating in high school sports was so important and this participation played a key role in my development. Team work, discipline, esprit de corp, the joy of victory and the sting of defeat - memories and lessons that are as fresh today as they were 30 years ago. As a result of the continued academic success of the school (100% placement of graduates in college - 70% four year college / 30% community) the football team needs some additional boosters. The uniforms need to be replaced - we all know the feeling of pride and esteem from seeing our teams look great and these guys deserve the same. In addition, more young men are coming to "The Verb" and additional equipment (helmets, pads, balls, etc.) is needed. I know all of us have other groups we support including many of you that provide support to your own children's teams but please consider helping this team get out on the field this upcoming season. I placed the "goal" of this fundraiser at $18,000 in order to raise enough money to get the team suited-up in new uniforms and to purchase additional much need equipment but we can only raise this much if each of you would be kind enough to pass this request on to your friends and family - post on facebook - tweet - instagram - email -blog. Anything. (Seriously - do it right now) Please help boost this team and in turn help young men who are already doing everything right to help themselves. For a little tug on the heart strings and to get a feel of the school click on this link for a short video about Verbum Dei and these awesome young men. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNbyboF1494&feature=youtu.be I am requesting a $20 donation from everyone but in truth this will never get the team the equipment they need- please consider pitching in money with wild abandonment and without regard to spousal repercussions! The donation is tax deductible and I can assure you that the new equipment and uniforms will be so very much appreciated. Thank you. Trajan
