The Anacostia Coordinating Council (ACC) has spent 30+ years committed to empowering our neighbors and transforming our neighborhoods for the better. We need your support to continue this work.
The Southeast (SE) Tarheels Youth Sports Association is a sports based youth development program located in the Ward 8 area of Washington, DC.
The Junior Midget team (pictured above) had a spectacular 2016 football season. They ended the regular season undeafeated 7-0 while holding their opponents to only 27 points. Because of their hard work on and off the field, the team has qualified to compete in the American Youth Football (AYF) National Championships held in Orlando, Florida.
The team is still raising money to meet its fundraising goal, so there is still time to sponsor. Please visit their GoFundMe page at: https://www.gofundme.com/se-tarheels.
