Last year, we approached a few local businesses in Pittsburgh and State College with a request to help bring our vision of the Global Jersey Exchange to life. We want to thank Webster's Bookstore, FC Pittsburgh, Sportzburgh Pittsburgh, and F-45 State College for their generous sponsorship to support our work in Kenya. If you are in Pittsburgh or State College, here's why highly recommend visiting these businesses:
Webster's Bookstore and Cafe
Webster's is a staple of the State College community. A European style cafe, Webster's features live music, healthy and delicious food, poetry, theatre, art, and many other forms of culture in State College! Why we love Webster's:
✓ Delicious coffee
✓ Fair-trade menu
✓ The coolest record collection
✓ Beautiful selection of books
✓ A true dedication to sustainability
A youth soccer organization in Pittsburgh, FC-Pittsburgh has built an incredible community by nurturing talent and creating the next generation of leaders, on and off the field. Why we love FC-Pittsburgh:
✓ Donated jerseys, balls, shoes and more for our partner communities in Kenya
✓ Emphasizes global perspective and youth leadership through sports
✓ Dedicated, experienced coaching staff
✓ The best travel schedule for any youth sports club in Pittsburgh!
With friendly staff and a wide selection of all types of Pittsburgh sports gear, Sportzburgh is the go-to spot for any sportswear for the Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins. Go check out their stores at Settler's Ridge and in the Pittsburgh Airport.
F-45 State College
We witnessed one of their 45 minute functional training sessions in person, and we can confirm: these workouts are a blast. If you want to transform your body in a few weeks and make some friends in the process, go visit F-45 on College Ave. Why we love F-45:
✓ Modern, innovative approach to fitness
✓ Gives back to the community in Center County and beyond
✓ F-45 was the first local sponsor for the Global Jersey Exchange!
Thank you for believing in us and kickstarting our journey that has led to partnering with over 90 athletes to impact over 300 children (and counting) with safe drinking water.
