KINGSVILLE, BALTIMORE COUNTY — The Argueta family of Kingsville has a passion for soccer and found a new purpose for the game while visiting relatives in El Salvador.

They met many children in their travels that also loved soccer but did not have the means to play. That is what inspired the Argueta's to start collecting new and used soccer equipment. They are looking for jerseys, shorts, socks, shin guards, cleats and soccer balls to donate to kids during an upcoming trip.

Donations can be made to the Arguetta's restaurant, Margherita Pizza. They have locations on Belair Road in Kingsville and on Main Street in Bel Air. You can also coordinate a drop off or pickup through the restaurant's Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BestMargheritaPizza.
