Tomorrow is the deadline to drop off soccer equipment for the children in Ghana. The effort was launched by Carbonear native and musician Curtis Andrews, who has been instrumental in helping to build a school in a tiny village in Africa. Andrews noticed how much the local children love soccer, but in some cases, didn't even have a proper soccer ball to kick around. People have been asked to drop off their used and unwanted soccer equipment, including cleats, balls, shin pads and uniforms, at KIXX Country and at 83 LeMarchant Street in Carbonear. Curtis's mom Rose is hoping to have the equipment ready for shipping by tomorrow.
