OneCallNow.com Helps Round Up Used Cleats

One Call Now, and automated voice messaging services that soccer coaches, team managers, and leagues use to reach players and parents with just one call, helped coach Jan Scriven round up and deliver 2,000 pairs of used soccer cleats for the benefit of players without the means to buy new shoes. The cleats, part of 11,904 pairs rounded up by many groups, were showcased at the NSCAA convention in January. A blog article at the OneCallNow blog provides the details and a photograph of the cleats on display. US Soccer Foundation reports on the achievement and a ceremony held 17 January to celebrate the program.
