The Bobadilla Summer Soccer Academy, a program coordinated by NBPD Captain Mike Bobadilla and New Brunswick Tomorrow, closed out another successful summer on August 4. This community program meets for five days a week over a one month period during the summer, where local kids ages 6-15 play soccer, learn about healthy living and community involvement and read. It is free to all participants. All kids in the program must perform community service projects and Elijah’s Promise was a major beneficiary of the campers’ enthusiasm and creativity: one group of kids organized a car wash and donated their $309 in tips to the organization. Another group made a total of 250 bag lunches to be given to clients. Two additional groups of students rolled 500 sets of utensils and created placemats for Elijah’s Promise to use in its community kitchen on Neilson Street. A fundraiser for Saint Jude’s Childrens Research Hospital collected funds to be donated and a community litter cleanup removed 600 pounds of trash and recyclables from streets in the neighborhood near New Brunswick High School. One group even made a new doghouse for the NBPD’s K-9’s, Moose and Odin. Officers and firefighters with the NBPD and the NBFD came by to visit with campers, cooling them off on hot days with the firehose and introducing the department’s K9’s, Moose and Odin, to the kids.
