Starfire Sports recently donated soccer balls and gear to the Hope House orphanage inKathmandu, Nepal. Working with the University of Notre Dame Center for Social Concerns and college student, Megan Malley, Starfire Sports was able to bring smiles and joy to some very deserving kids through this simple donation of soccer balls and t-shirt jersey’s.
Providing soccer opportunities is part of what makes Starfire Sports unique and by providing soccer gear to those without is one simple way to achieve this goal. By offering soccer gear collection sites at Soccer West stores in Factoria and Federal Way, together we are serving kids throughout our community.
Over the last 5 years, Starfire Sports and Soccer West have collected and distributed thousands of gently worn cleats, shin guards, t-shirt jerseys, shorts, and soccer balls to kids throughout our community and beyond. Serving kids locally first, we have been able to provide additional equipment donations to youth in Uganda, Somalia, Ghana, Afghanistan, Rwanda, Southern Kenya and other destinations through humanitarian effort and organization who have roots in Seattle.
If you would like to help with these efforts, please drop off your gently worn soccer gear at any of the Soccer West collection sites or at Starfire Sports. Thank you, it’s for the kids!

Thanks Starfire! We are Megan Malley’s grandparents and we know how happy it made her to take off for Kathmandu with your gift.
