MLS WORKS joins Columbus Crew for Massive Makeover Project

On September 10th, prior to the USA vs. Mexico 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifier game at Crew Stadium, MLS WORKS partnered with the Columbus Crew to conduct a Crew Massive Makeover of the Linden Village Green Space Community Garden.  The beautification project gave staff members from various MLS Clubs and the League office the opportunity to give back to the Linden community while in town for the MLS Business Summit.  MLS volunteers participated in various activities including building a fence on the property, assembling a storage unit, patio and pergola, installing benches and a swing, planting flowers and trees and prepping planters for next season’s vegetables.  Once the volunteer enhancements were complete, a permanent water tap was installed on the property so that the community gardeners have access to water throughout the year. To show their gratitude to the Columbus Crew, The Linden Green Space Community Garden Association donated $200.00 to the Kirk Urso Memorial fund which provides a platform to develop and support youth heart health research and programming as well as honor the memory of Crew midfielder Kirk Urso. The day of service was part of “Community Care Day” in the City of Columbus and was in conjunction with the Greater Linden Development Corporation and the United Way of Columbus.
