Crew players deliver canned goods to local food bank

Crew players Bernardo Anor, Federico Higuain, Jairo Arrieta, Matias Sanchez and Augustin Viana made a special delivery to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank this week in conjunction with the Crew’s ¡Viva el Fútbol! celebration presented by Lifeline of Ohio for Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15- October 15).

At four different Crew home match dates throughout the 2013 season, fans were encouraged to bring canned food items to the Crew Stadium gates as part of the Crew and Sodexo Fight Hunger Food Drive. As a result of this drive, the two organizations were able to donate over 6,000 pounds of canned food which is enough to feed roughly 2,000 families.
