Sounders FC's United We Serve Campaign Kicks Off

Our community partner, Sounders FC are kicking off their first United We Serve event event of the 2010 season. The volunteering opportunity will be this Sunday, April 18th at Franklin High School going from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. There will be players and coaches attending from 9 to 10 a.m.!

The United We Serve events are monthly volunteer opportunities where fans can work together with Sounders players and coaches to improve local Seattle communities. The event is being led by the non-profit, Rebuilding Together Seattle along with support from Seattle Bank.

This community service ties in with the SCORES spring program because our kids focus their writing efforts on a community project. The student-athletes develop an idea for a project, implement it, and then share it with the community at our spring Jamboree event on May 20th.

SCORES is teaching the students that they can make a difference in their community and the Sounders are showing that off the pitch, they can too. The kids realize that with their own individual projects are part of a larger effort going on throughout the Puget Sound. This is an awesome example for the students!

Thanks for being role models Sounders, on and off the field.
