What is new with New York City FC and their helping out locally, the Front -of -Shirt Branding for the game this weekend will be donated to bring more attention to their cause. This is all part and parcel of their Cityzens Giving for Recovery campaign, a 12 month effort to help relief work on COVID-19.
Later today, there is their digital fundraiser with NYCFC players and executives, coaches and influencers, hosted by our friends, The Cooligans. The game facing FCC where they will have the unique front of the shirt will be just 2 days later on Saturday and yes, we will be there. The new front for this one time only will read "Cityzens Giving for the South Bronx". Post game will feature them in an auction where all funds will go straight to helping the South Bronx, CFG will have a dollar for dollar matching program of all monies brought in during the month long effort, getting more money toward this group.
NYCFC & partners have already donated 143,000 meals to New York Common Pantry's Bronx initiative during this pandemic. The new push will get additional humanitarian aide out in the local areas via the Pantry while NYC continues on the ongoing battle with the virus and helping get the locals in a better situation. Now with the social distancing easing a bit, NYCFC staff will keep up with their volunteering in the South Bronx.
