Last night, a good portion of the Atletico FC NY family came together to help feed Long Island families this Thanksgiving.
Atletico players accepted donations, divided them by team, sorted all food items, bagged the requested individual full meals AND loaded all the meals in to the LONG ISLAND CARES cargo van. They worked together and tirelessly. So proud of those boys!!
The winner of this yearâs ATLETICO CHALLENGE were the Atletico 05 Boys!! They collected 81 full meals to secure their victory! This is the 05 boysâ SECOND year winning the Atletico Challenge. Great job boys! Congratulations!!
Thank you to everyone who made a donation. We know everyoneâs so busy this time of year and we really appreciate those who took the time to donate.
Last night, the Atletico FC NY soccer club was able to donate 161 FULL Thanksgiving Meals!
161 FULL Thanksgiving Meals were collected and donated!
161 Long Island families, who may have otherwise gone without, will now be able to enjoy a delicious meal this Thanksgiving, thanks to the efforts of all involved.
