FC Cincinnati partnered with St. Vincent de Paul – West End to help give back to the community to this holiday season. As part of St. Vincent de Paul – West End’s Christmas Together program, FCC front staff matched with three families and were able to fulfill their personalized Christmas wish lists.
FC Cincinnati set up the organization’s annual Giving Trees across the club’s three campuses – TQL Stadium, Mercy Health Training Center and the club’s downtown offices – and collected a total of 75 gifts purchased for families in need this season.
Additionally, FCC staff collected 20 winter coats for the organization’s neighbors at Hays-Porter Elementary School to help ensure some of our youngest fans would stay warm this winter.
“A priority for FC Cincinnati is to give back to the West End Community,” said Kate Solomon SVP, Fan & Community Engagement and Executive Director, FCC Foundation. “Partnering with St. Vincent de Paul – West End and collecting coats for students at Hays-Porter Elementary School are just two of the ways FC Cincinnati is committed to leaving a legacy, creating something bigger than ourselves, and being the embodiment of a rising Cincinnati.”
