Kyle Florio, 8, and his Pop Warner Football team need an interpreter for full communication access, both receptive and expressive, during practices and games in the football season of 2013. Football is a sport requiring to have constant communication in many directions. With communication access provided, Kyle would be able to understand and respond to coaches calling offense and defense plays promptly, to converse stimulatingly with his coaches and teammates, to learn football techniques and fundamentals quickly as well as be included in every aspect of the team activities (such as practices, games and coaches' rapports, etc.) in the most seamless and accessible manner.

The interpreting service is, unfortunately, not free. With your help, Kyle, his teammates, and coaches would be very appreciative for any donation you can give towards hiring an interpreter.  Kyle's coaches themselves are PARENTS who simply volunteer their time to help the team. 


Your kind contribution would help cover the cost of an interpreter for 40 practices and 9 games.  Please consider donating to this important cause so Kyle and his team can have a successful football season!
