The Cary Lions Club donated $1,000 to the Cary Soccer Association for assistance in obtaining sign interpreters for hearing-impaired children who require sign language to participate in soccer.

Hughie O'Malley received the donation on behalf of the CSA stating that their organization attempts to use volunteer interpreters whenever available but this donation was greatly appreciated as it will provide for paid interpreters when a volunteer interpreter is not available thus keeping the hearing-impaired active in the program.

Andrew Wisniewski expressed his appreciation with a plate of cookies and a big smile to the Lions Club members and signing "thank you." He further shared through his interpreter that he is so excited that he will be able to continue to play and win soccer games.
