After Long Beach Public Schools suffered extensive water damage and the athletic department lost most of its team uniforms, equipment, and supplies.
Farmingdale High school juniors, Samantha Brescia and Christine Kelly, both have a deep passion for lacrosse and wanted to help make a difference and help other athletes. After an initial post on Facebook, the girls reached out to lacrosse organizations and universities asking for lacrosse donations. The girls received many donations to help the Long Beach girl’s lacrosse teams.
When Christine and Samantha were unpacking the box of donated lacrosse pinnies from Womenslax.com they found a letter titled “26 Acts of Kindness”. Jersey #1-26 represented 26 random acts of kindness to honor the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary school tragedy.
The Lady Dalers continue to pay it forward.
On Feb. 22, Farmingdale lacrosse Coach Shari Campbell invited the Long Beach coaches and a few players to come to the high school and pick up donated items which included sticks, goggles, cleats, pinnies, socks and balls.
Thanks to Lacrosse Unlimited, WomensLax.com, Reversible Lifestyle, Long Island Metro Lacrosse Foundation, Warrior, Maverik, and the colleges and universities who helped make this all possible.
