Soccer players collect equipment for others

Three young Carmel Valley athletes collected donations last week for athletes in Mexico who don’t have the equipment to play their favorite sports. Carmel Valley Manchester soccer players and twins Bailey and Rachel Buckley organized the drive with friend Brandon Weinreb for their community project element of their Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are a tradition of the Jewish faith when a child turns 13 years old.

Brandon started the collection drive through his Del Mar Little League team but the trio continued to collect donations together at Ashley Falls School.
The Carmel Valley Middle School students will take part in bringing the donations to Tijuana. They expect to celebrate their bar and bat mitzvahs in January.
