The 2022 MLS Cup Champion LAFC and Golden Boot Club Partner Target invite fans to participate in the Club’s 2022 Season of Giving. Throughout November and December, LAFC and Target will continue to be a Force For Good, hosting events and volunteer opportunities that bring the holiday spirit to thousands of families and community organizations throughout the greater Los Angeles Area.
As a ‘Force for Good’ in the community, LAFC and Target will host a full slate of community events beginning Monday, Nov 21 with a day of service at Union Rescue Mission where LAFC staff will help prepare and serve lunch as the Mission celebrates Thanksgiving.
The following day, fans and staff from LAFC will team up to distribute 500 Thanksgiving meals to preselected families via a drive-thru distribution center at Banc of California Stadium. Meal packages come complete with fresh turkey and trimmings courtesy of Target, as well as a box of fresh produce and snacks courtesy of Melissa’s Produce.
The Season of Giving continues with the LAFC virtual Holiday Toy Drive in partnership with Target and the 3252, LAFC’s Independent Supporter’s Union. Kicking off on Nov. 25 and running through Dec. 8, community members can select and purchase items from a carefully curated Target ‘wish list’ registry for the children of Union Rescue Mission’s Hope Gardens Family Center and Athletes in the Making. The toy drive concludes with a holiday gift wrapping volunteer event on Dec. 12 open to all community members, followed by the Black & Gold Holiday Party on Dec. 15 at Banc of California Stadium where the children will receive their gifts.
