Penya DC has a long history of donating equipment to DC Scores, the non-profit organization that "...runs the only consistent public soccer leagues for both elementary and middle school youth in the District" (DCScores.org).  Every year, Penya DC purchases equipment that DC scores has identified it will need for the upcoming school soccer season in Washington, D.C.  This year's donation consists of 65 electronic whistles that will replace the regular whistles previously used.  The advantages of using electronic whistles have been written about in such publications as the New York Times, https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/26/sports/basketball/electronic-whistles-referees.html, and News24.com, https://www.news24.com/sport/othersport/will-sport-embrace-electronic-whistles-in-a-covid-19-world-20200630.  In this time of Covid-19, electronic whistles prevent the release of droplets into the air, as happens with regular whistles, adding to the safety of all on the playing field.
