Sports Dec 14, 2017 East York Mirror

A multi-purpose room at WoodGreen (WG) Community Services’ 815 Danforth Ave. location has received a much-appreciated facelift thanks to a partnership between Major League Soccer (MLS) and the Toronto Football Club (TFC).

The project was made possible through MLS WORKS, MLS’s community outreach initiative.

On Thursday, Dec. 7 — prior to their thrilling MLS Cup win at BMO Field on Saturday, Dec. 9 — several Toronto FC players along with team and MLS executives gathered at WoodGreen to unveil and dedicate the new TFC-branded room, which includes a new reading and lounge area, new furniture, and computers and multimedia equipment.

Hundreds of young adults and teens associated with WG’s Newcomer Youth Services program will use the newly renovated space, which will enhance the free programs provided by the east end social service agency to youth new to Canada like counselling, workshops, health and wellness programs, homework and arts clubs, and sports and financial empowerment.   

In addition to paying for the renovation of the multi-purpose room, MLS WORKS and Toronto FC also made a financial donation to WG’s Youth Soccer League.

Those funds will be used to pay for new equipment, apparel and year-long programming including access to indoor facilities during the winter.

Further, TFC’s Soccer Development team will also be running youth programming and clinics, and facilitate alumni appearances. 

 Both organizations also donated warm clothing to local residents.
