BENEFITING: Metropolitan Family Service
EVENT DATE: May 13, 2017
Access to sports is one of many barriers our youth living in high poverty neighborhoods regularly face. For the past five years, Metropolitan Family Service (MFS) Community Schools staff have organized an annual event that brings our families and communities together. We use soccer as an avenue to engage families and promote healthy lifestyles. This event includes lunch and fun activities, produce distribution and direct access to community services and resources like onsite dental and vision screenings, even a review of their credit report by an MFS financial coach.
The MFS Emerging Leaders Council is a motivated group of young professionals dedicated to furthering MFS' mission to help people move beyond the limitations poverty, inequity and social isolation. By pledging their time to volunteer at the event and raise $2,500 to support MFS Community Cup, the Emerging Leaders Council is positively impacting the lives of thousands of kids and families in the Portland metro area. Thank you for joining the Emerging Leaders in supporting MFS families!
