Houston Dynamo Using Three-Game Homestand to Help Hurricane Relief

In Houston, Bernardo Fallas reported that the Houston Dynamo “will use part of their upcoming homestand to raise funds for Houston- and Galveston-area youth soccer clubs affected by Hurricane Ike.” For the three-game set, which begins October 12, the Dynamo “will partner with nonprofit soccer organizations including the South Texas Youth Soccer Association to collect equipment and money for affected clubs.”

Dynamo COO Chris Canetti: “”It is our hope that by helping kids to return to the soccer fields, we can play a part in bringing things back to normal” (Houston Chronicle, 9/26).
