Wirreanda Secondary School continues its community connection with Kevin Milstein from the The Reagan Milstein Foundation .
Since its launch in November 2010, RMF has commenced and assisted a number of initiatives and programs to help less fortunate children in Australia, Tonga, Vanuatu, Vietnam and many other countries. These initiatives include:
• Sponsoring talented youngsters;
• Providing football equipment to various less fortunate football associations;
• Developing football programs and matches in conjunction with Football Federation Victoria and various Victorian football clubs to promote social activity through football.
• Recycling donated boots as well as pre-loved and unused uniforms for redistribution to children that cannot afford new boots or uniforms.
Today, RMF raises funds to assist youngsters who may not have an opportunity to play football, with five key interests, namely Indigenous Australian youth, to help in the development of young talented footballers, female football, disability groups and emerging communities in Australia.
While the foundation was created to help those in need, we also hope that the foundation will keep the memory of Reagan alive in the community and allow us to fulfill the expectations he placed on himself to make a difference in the lives of others.
Kevin explains ” There is no greater honour that we can bestow on the memory of our beautiful Reagan than to help others in his name” .
RMF has kindly donated soccer strips , soccer balls and various other equipment so that our students can run a daily soccer program in Cambodia as part of our Wirreanda Cambodia Project .
We are incredibly grateful to Kevin and the RMF for supporting Wirreanda Secondary School and look forward to running the Regan Milstein Soccer Program in Siem Reap in July 2016 .
