Arpin Group Helps Two Teenagers With Charity Effort


Arpin Group recently teamed up with the Rhode Island retail chain, Ocean State Job Lot, to help two local teenagers carry out their effort to transport 20 boxes of donated soccer equipment to children in Haiti.

Cassandra and Christiana Layman, both soccer players, and their SoccerRECYCLE program, collected 20 boxes of soccer gear this summer, with plans to ship them to Haiti for the children affected by devastation in that area.

Ocean State Job Lot contributed to the effort by donating 3,200 athletic shoes as well.

The young women contacted Matt Dolan, Arpin Group’s Chief Operating Officer, and asked if Arpin could transport the donation to North Carolina, where the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s shipping center is located. The foundation will ensure that the donated items are delivered to the children of Haiti, which is expected to be fulfilled sometime in the next few months.

Arpin has helped transport donations in the past and happily agreed to transport the extra large shipment to North Carolina for free.
