Every Save Makes A Difference Benefitting YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas

FRISCO – Throughout the 2019 season, MLS WORKS, Allstate and Univision have partnered to provide opportunities for underserved youth in MLS markets, including Dallas-Fort Worth.

This Saturday, every save recorded during the Univision telecast of FC Dallas vs New York Red Bulls will result in a donation of $500 worth of soccer equipment to the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas. Their mission is to put Christian values into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all, our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.

Throughout the 2018 season, over $8,000 in donations were made to DFW area schools and charities as a result of the Every Save Makes a Difference program. Since 2015, the program has donated over $340,000 worth of equipment and has impacted over 170 difference organizations.
