When I started volunteering with TOPSoccer, I didn’t realize what an impact it had on my life. TOPSoccer is an organization where volunteers partner up with special needs children to play soccer and other games. These children often don’t have the opportunity to play sports and other games with friends, things that other children take for granted. Being able to give these kids that experience and to help put smiles on their faces fills my heart with joy.
Volunteering with TOPSoccer has changed me in many ways. I learned to be patient and loving to everyone I meet. I have gained a passion for volunteering and seeing how much my love for these kids impacts them and their families. I have discovered that by giving oneself to make other lives better, I have made myself a better person. That is a lesson that I will take with me for the rest of my life.
