His House Children's Home
On Friday, May 1, founding member Pablo Joseph traveled to His House Children's Home in Homestead to deliver food and soccer balls. He coordinated with Tropical Chinese restaurant, who helped us provide food for over 100 people. His House is a nonprofit, faith-based organization that has provided stability to over 15,000 kids' lives and currently house over 100 kids. In addition to the meals, Pablo brought 50 soccer balls for the kids to play with during the quarantine. They were very grateful, and we are looking forward to working with them in the future.
Fienberg Fisher K-8 Ball Giveaway
Although our on-field events have been halted due to COVID-19, ASLF continues to help the community. On Monday, April 27, founders Daniel and Sebastian Mateu went to Fienberg Fisher, an elementary school on Miami Beach, to give out free balls to students and parents. ASLF recognizes that many kids are becoming restless in isolation. As most children have been under a lockdown for a month and a half now, we found it imperative to give the children at this elementary school an outlet. The kids were ecstatic upon receiving the soccer balls, and hopefully they can now begin to cultivate a passion for soccer.
ASLF Partners with Feeding South Florida
The Coronavirus has hindered our soccer operations at the moment, but we knew that there still were ways to help out our fellow South Floridians. Due to the postponement of our clinics, club soccer, and our Bahamas outreach trip this summer, we looked to find other ways to serve our community. During these hard times, many families in our community need help, so we decided that partnering with Feeding South Florida would have the greatest impact. A Soccer Life Foundation has agreed to match donations up to $3,000 to Feeding South Florida. Through these efforts, we hope to provide at least 46,000 meals.

We hope that everyone is safe and healthy, and we hope to get back out on the pitch as soon as possible!
