FRISCO, Texas – As the end of the regular season approaches, so does another season of charitable contributions with the help of the Every Save Makes a Difference program. Through the efforts of MLS Works and Univision, each save recorded by FC Dallas during a Univision/UniMás televised match benefitted a local Dallas non-profit.
Throughout the season, over $8,000 in donations were made to Dallas-area schools and charities. The FC Dallas Foundation selected the following beneficiaries for the 2018 season: Dowell FC, Marcus Elementary School, Gray Elementary School, Burleson FC, Lakeside Middle School and Rusk Middle School.
Since 2015, Every Save Makes A Difference has donated over $250,000 worth of equipment and has impacted over 120 different organizations.
