Nothing beats helping kids in need around the holiday season, which is why we were super excited to bring some of DC's finest football + futbol stars together for a good cause! In December, we worked with the Washington Redskins DT Jonathan Allen + DC United Midfielder Russell Canouse to collect sports equipment from the community for underprivileged youth as a part of our KRā for Play Initiative.
The equipment was then donated to Beacon House, which "provides children in the Edgewood neighborhood of Northeast Washington, DC with a safe, nurturing, and life-expanding community in which to increase their academic achievement, discover their talents, and to grow into healthy adults who achieve their greatest potential." The program also features after-school sports programs to help kids grow and learn how to achieve both on and off the field.
