For those cleaning out their closets and looking to donate unwanted soccer gear, Kids In Cleats will begin to safely collect items all while giving you a chance to teach your children the importance of giving back.

Kids In Cleats is currently collecting used and new cleats, shin guards, uniforms, used working iPads and phones.

The mission of Kids In Cleats is to use soccer as the vehicle for children to rise out of poverty through education, self-empowerment and sport in Cameroon, Africa. Kids In Cleats was started by Montclair mother-of-two and psychotherapist, Erica Gerstman, along with her two young sons, and ex-professional soccer player and current soccer trainer Julio Tsasse.

Donations can be dropped off from June 15th – June 30th at Montclair Fire Department, 1 Pine Street, Montclair.

Look for the collection bins!
