Lace Up With Lax
The Blessed Trinity Lacrosse program needs your help! Over the last eight years, we have participated in hosting a Lace Up with Lax lacrosse game where we collected children’s shoes and donated them to Must Ministries here locally. Last year we were able to collect 130 pairs of shoes, 100 pairs of socks and $250 in cash donations. Lace Up With Lax is a foundation that sponsors lacrosse games around the country with the goal of ending child homelessness. At these Lace Up games, fans are encouraged to bring a new pair of children's shoes which are then donated to children in need in the surrounding community.
This year, Lace Up With Lax is celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary of collecting shoes and having a community wide lacrosse tournament at Pope High School on March 5th. Our boys Varsity program will be playing GAC at 1:00 p.m. Our goal is to bring 300 pairs of shoes with us to the event. We want our school to be the one with the MOST donations!
There are many ways you can help:
- We will have a shoe collection at the Girls Varsity game on Friday 2/25 vs. East Forsyth. Please consider bringing new, unworn children's shoes to the game.
- Shoe collection at the Boys JV and Varsity Games on Tuesday, 3/1 vs. Holy Innocents. Please consider bringing new, unworn children's shoes to the game.
- We have set up a registry at Walmart that will deliver the shoes directly to us to take to the event.
We are honored to have our entire lacrosse program and school associated with a foundation and event that does so much to help struggling children in our community.
If you have any questions about the event or collections, please contact Susan Van Buren at svanburen33@gmail or 404-386-2235. Thank you in advance for your support in helping to make this a successful shoe drive for the BT Lacrosse program!
