For every one of their saved goals during a recent game, the San Jose Earthquakes donated $500 worth of soccer equipment to EMQ FamiliesFirst. At the end of the match, the Earthquakes had enough saves to give $2,500 in equipment for kids to use in our programs.
The Every Save Makes a Difference community program was launched by Major League Soccer (MLS) WORKS, Allstate Insurance and Univision Deportes to support Hispanic community groups in MLS markets.
“The success of MLS is driven by the passion and support of our fans and we believe it is extremely important to show our appreciation by giving back to the local communities,” said JoAnn Neale, Chief Administrative Officer of Major League Soccer. “Through the Every Save Makes a Difference campaign we are pleased to continue supporting our communities by further encouraging young fans to live a healthy lifestyle and to stay active through the sport we all love.”
EMQ FamiliesFirst kids and families went to the Avaya Stadium to help pick up the donation of soccer equipment. They were thrilled to be on the field and meet Earthquakes player Khari Stephenson who signed autographs for the kids.
Thanks to the San Jose Earthquakes for treating our kids and families to a visit at Avaya Stadium!
