The soccer team this holiday season collected cleaning supplies at each home game. This generously helped over 28 families to go home this Thanksgiving break with a full reusable grocery bag of laundry detergent, sponges, 409, Windex and more. Cleaning supplies are very expensive, yet they last a long time, stretching a limited income just a little more, especially around the holiday. The soccer team collected over 200 pieces of cleaning supplies for families helping them out.

Along with the soccer team being generous, they also had a great season off the field.

The soccer team donated the supplies to a Crabapple Middle School foundation that Becky Nelson started 3 years ago called HHH (Huskies Helping Huskies). HHH is a 501(c) 3 dedicated to helping those within the Crabapple Middle School community without stable housing and/or food sources. Celebrating its 4th year, HHH depends on the generosity of local organizations, grants and scholarships. 100 percent of funds donated go directly back into the community support for these families who choose to live in the Roswell area. Many of the HHH families have siblings at Roswell High School who either went through the program or have benefited from it. The families receiving the cleaning products also got another laundry basket full of food, including a twenty pound turkey for each family, in time for a week of food needed to provide for the families.

“I love getting notes from the kids thanking the HHH team for giving them a better family improvement that HHH does for their family,” said Becky Nelson.
