[CHARITY] Youth soccer organizations affiliated with the US Youth Soccer have raised nearly a quarter million dollars in grants for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

US Youth Soccer's Region 1 established a Disaster Relief Grant Program for Region 1 clubs and organizations that have suffered damage as a result of the storm. Twenty grants, each up to $2,000, are being awarded.

On the way to a total donation of $80,000, the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) has given $46,000 in checks to its needy clubs. The money has already been sent to those needy clubs in the Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League (CJSL), Staten Island Youth Soccer League (SIYSL) and Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

Additionally, the LIJSL has established a Disaster Relief Fund Program of $125,000 for its members/clubs that suffered damage as a direct result from Hurricane Sandy.

In order to be eligible to receive a LIJSL Hurricane Sandy Fund, the individual or club must be an affiliated organization with the LIJSL, ENYYSA and US Youth Soccer. Contact the LIJSL at 631-648-9020 for more information.

The East Hudson Youth Soccer League (EHYSL) was not as affected by Hurricane Sandy as its downstate neighbors so it has donated $4,000 to the SIYSL and $2,000 to the LIJSL.

A for-profit company, SportsSignup in Saratoga Springs, made a $10,000 donation last month to ENYYSA leagues most affected by Hurricane Sandy. The CJSL, SIYSL and LIJSL each received $3,333.
