Soccer may not be the most popular sport among Chester locals, but, by far, it’s the most generous sport.

This past fall the Southeastern Pennsylvania Soccer Hall of Fame conducted its seventh “Coats for Chester” event. The purpose was to collect warm, winter coats from the soccer community and donate them to needy families in Chester, PA, home of our Major League Soccer team, Philadelphia Union.

The program was not only hugely successful, but also very fulfilling as it showed that soccer people can make a difference off the field as well as on. A grand total of 2,130 coats were collected and distributed to needy children and adults in Chester.
