Cooper has pumped the amount of thirty thousand Liberian dollars L$30,000 to the Federation.
Presenting the amount to the Federation recently, the Administrator in the Office of Senator Cooper said the gesture is in fulfillment of pledge previously made to the team by his Boss.
Mr. Gabriel Nyumah indicated that previously the Senator pledged hundred thousand Liberian dollars L$100,000 to the Federation after he was informed that the group is working towards selecting players from Margibi to avoid borrowing players from other Counties.
Mr. Nyumah narrated that the amount is initial as the remaining L$70,000 will be presented to the Federation in subsequent time.
Receiving the money on behalf of the Federation, the Advisor and Chairman on the protest and grievance committee of the Liberia Kickball Federation in Margibi County Benedict McCarthy thanked the Senator for the gesture.
