Although we are living through historic times, at ESCO we continue to strive to meet our mission of developing youth and community through soccer. 

Under Phase 4 guidance from the state, the ESCO Board of Directors continues to work towards creating meaningful programs for our youth leaders and community partners. 

In the coming weeks, more details will be shared about the following programs:

  • Youth Leadership Program: We are looking at ways to hold leadership meetings in a remote setting.
  • Community Outreach Soccer: We are working with school administrators and state guidelines to see if we will be able to run our soccer programs for underserved youth in the fall. The summer soccer program at the Backstretch of Arlington Park has been canceled, but we are exploring other ways that we can help.
  • Community Partnerships:  We will continue to support organizations in our community like NCH Foundation, Journeys | The Road Home, Wheeling Township Food Pantry.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel this year’s golf outing which provides nearly 70% of our operating dollars. But, we will continue to look for fun, creative ways to fundraise for our programs.

Our spring Lou Malnati’s Frozen Pizza fundraiser is still active. Pizzas cost $13 and $5 of that purchase will be donated back to ESCO. Click the button below for more information.

As we look to our 10th year as a nonprofit organization, we are grateful for your continued support. 

With gratitude,

Jay Casaletto
Executive Director
