CREW DELIVERS THANKSGIVING DINNER
Columbus Crew President Mark McCullers, Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter and Brand Ambassador Frankie Hejduk spent Tuesday afternoon going door-to-door delivering Thanksgiving dinners to families of The American Addition neighborhood in North Central Columbus. The Crew representatives were joined by Tray Lee Center Executive Director Marie Moreland to provide each family with a turkey, family-style side dish and pumpkin pie courtesy of the Columbus Crew.

Summer Reading

More than 200 participants from the Crew's "Get a Kick Out of Reading" summer challenge attended the September 29, 2012 match and had the chance to meet Crew legend Frankie Hejduk. The Crew partnered with the Columbus Metropolitan Library this summer to offer this unique program. K-12 students that read for 90 minutes each week (the length of a soccer match) during the month of August each received two tickets to the game and a meet and greet opportunity with the former Crew captain and U.S. Men's National Team star. Frankie read from soccer-themed children's books and signing autographs at the event.
