Local College Students Deflate Soccer Balls to Ship to Refugee Children

It may have been a first at Mount Mary University today a dedicated group, methodically taking the air out of a bunch of soccer balls.

They got most of the balls from the athletic department and they were deflating them so they could be packed in two suitcases for delivery to kids at a Syrian Refugee Camp in Jordan. 

A Syrian-American doctor from Children's Hospital is going on a medical mission to that camp and the university is seeing to it that he has plenty of soccer balls to bring along.

“That was a hard process, I've never de-squished or squished a soccer ball before, but with a little practice and with the help of my fellow Mount Mary community members, we figured it out."

They called this act of generosity a grand deflating party feel free to insert your own Tom Brady joke.
