California Magic Soccer Club's '99 Boys players, Ben Nash (Bentley HS '17) and Oliver Feigin (Acalanes HS '18), collected soccer gear donations from the Orinda, Lafayette and Moraga communities to assist the nonprofit, Oakland-based Soccer Without Borders (SWB). This organization funds and operates a community soccer program for refugees ages 5-21.

Families from California Magic SC, Acalanes and Bentley high schools, and local business Soccer Post, in Lafayette, all generously contributed to the uniform drive. As a result of several local efforts in the Lamorinda community, SWB has been able to establish its soccer library for players to check out, and ultimately own, soccer uniforms for practices and games.

Ben and Oliver also trained as volunteer coaches and participated in the SWB 10th Annual Refugee Community Soccer Camp. For more information about Soccer Without Borders, and its mission to "harness the power of soccer as a universal language," please visit
