Last Friday, October 20th, a few JKJers: Alexandra Bretschneider, Mike McGuire, Miriam Ehrlich and Ryan Grow spent the day cleaning the field and tidying the classroom of the Starfinder Foundation for the Passion with a Purpose initiative. The Starfinder Foundation is a nonprofit in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia that mentors underserved youth from all over the city via soccer, education, and leadership training. It was a blast getting to better know their staff and to hear about both the awesome work they presently do for the community, and also some neat things happening in the near future. We even had time for a game afterwards with their staff!
