philadelphia union foundation
The playground build is a part of the Philadelphia Union Foundation’s ongoing efforts to promote youth health and recreation in the Chester community and to provide children with safe places to play. MLS has engaged in similar projects in Seattle, Salt Lake City, Houston, and Carson, CA.
The Philadelphia Union Foundation is proud to partner with KaBOOM!, a non-profit organization that hopes to put a playground within walking distance of every child in America. For more information on KaBOOM!, please visit http://kaboom.org/about_kaboom.
Philadelphia Union players have signed up to participate in the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation, which contributes financial resources to selected non-profit organizations that effectively serve and benefit children with an emphasis on health, education and inner-city services.
All sports divisions consist of Teammates who contribute a pre-determined sum based on selected categories for their in-game performance. The foundation then triples the paid donation of each athlete. $20,000 was raised through this program for the Philadelphia Union Foundation.
Save the date! The 2nd annual River Cup will take place on August 26 with proceeds benefitting the Philadelphia Union Foundation.
The Sons of Ben will be out for revenge after the Union front office edged the supporters group 2-1 in last year's inaugural charity match. Stay tuned for further details.
