On Earth Day 2017, over 40 SVG employees rolled up their sleeves to help clean Swope Park alongside our Sporting Kansas City partners. This event was part of the second annual “Greener Goals” Earth Day week of service, as part of MLS WORKS. Throughout the week leading up to Earth Day, every major league soccer team partnered with local charitable organizations and spent time giving back to their communities in eco-friendly ways.
This year’s efforts for Sporting KC focused on removing wild invasive honeysuckle from the Swope Park woods. Swope Park relies on hundreds of volunteers throughout the year to keep their grounds well-kept for visitors from around the country and world!

In addition to Greener Goals, SVG employees helped with SKC’s “Recycle Your Game”. During this event, over 70 kids were able to snag recycled soccer equipment donated by people, business, and other groups in Kansas City.
