COMMUNITY PARTNER: FC HARLEM
K+S will make a contribution to this year's community partner, FC Harlem, a New York-based community youth development organization using “The World’s Game” as a platform to develop "L.I.O.NS" (Leaders In Our Neighborhoods)™.
FC Harlem uses soccer as the means to connect with young people in Harlem, Washington Heights and Bronx both on and off the field. Through sport, they instill resilience, integrity, responsibility, compassion and a team mentality. Through academic and leadership programs, they deliver knowledge and experiences that propel young people to new levels of success. They serve, youth in Harlem, Washington Heights and Bronx with a particular focus on our Black and Latino population who need us most.
We encourage you to help us to support them by donating when purchasing tickets. 100% of these donations will help fund FC Harlem's mission to provide underserved youth the skills and support they need to be fearless in life.
