Every Save Makes A Difference Benefitting Rusk Middle School

FC Dallas is in the nation's capitol for their lone meeting against D.C. United, where they'll be playing at Audi Field for the first time. With the national broadcast on Univision, the Every Save Makes a Difference program is in effect and will benefit a local Dallas non-profit.

Every save recorded on Saturday's match will result in a donation of $500 worth of soccer equipment to Rusk Middle School in Dallas. The mission of the Rusk Middle School soccer program is to provide our children with the best positive learning experience in a safe environment. Rusk Middle School places an emphasis on pride in the school and community.

This season, FCDallas' 14 saves have totaled $7,000 donations to Dallas-area schools and charities. 

Since 2015, Every Save Makes A Difference has donated over $250,000 worth of equipment and has impacted over 120 different organizations.

FC Dallas will play six nationally televised games on UniMas/Univision in 2018:

March 24 Portland Timbers FC UniMás Dowell FC $2,500
May 5 Los Angeles FC Univision Marcus Elementary School $1,500
May 12 LA Galaxy UniMás Gray Elementary School $500
June 23 New York Red Bulls UniMás Burleson FC $2,500
August 23 Houston Dynamo UniMás Lakeside Middle School 0 (no saves)
October 13 D.C. United Univision Rusk Middle School TBD

In the event there are no saves recorded by either club, then no donation will be made.
