MANCHESTER, N.H. - The Saint Anselm College men's soccer team will visit the Purple Knights of Saint Michael's College for its annual Community Cup match, scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 5.
Both teams will be donating $500 to the Winooski School District, a local district chosen by the home team. The funds will be used to support pre-kindergarten to high school students' day-to-day needs as well as seasonal items and athletic equipment.
Wade Jean, the head coach of men's soccer at Saint Michael's, explains that the goal of this charity cup is to "encourage, support, and teach the student-athletes values of serving their community with the hopes of positively impacting the lives of those around them."
"We are extremely happy to help organizations like the Winooski School District that provide opportunities for growth and development for local youth, including refugee and immigrant students," said Bruno Victal, the Head Coach of men's soccer at Saint Anselm. "It is amazing to see both programs working together again to help those in need."
Last year, Saint Anselm hosted the cup and selected the Inti Soccer Academy as its charity. This organization serves underprivileged youth of the Manchester, N.H. area through the sport of soccer.
The Purple Knights and the Hawks face off once again in a Northeast-10 Conference game on Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 4 p.m. at Melucci Field.
