Tricon Sports Inc. has partnered with the non-protif international development organization Coaches Across Continents (CAC) to collect new and gently used soccer equipment for use furthering CAC's development programs in Africa. Tricon will be collecting donations of cleats/shoes, jerseys, balls and other soccer items at its store location of 415 Waltham Street, Lexington, MA. CAC uses a three-year "Hattrick" program to create locally run, self-sustaining education centers in over 15 countries in Africa which educate African youth on important issues they face. Previous programs have covered topics such as female empowerment, conflict resolution and HIV prevention awareness.
