In the wake of this week's tragic events in the city of Boston, the LA Galaxy Foundation will donate 10,000 dollars to the One Fund Boston, which was created to help those most affected by the events on April 15.
The club will also be hanging flags of the New England Revolution, New England Patriots, Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins, and Boston Red Sox as well as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on the grass berm during Saturday's match against Sporting Kansas City. The Galaxy will also observe a Moment of Silence pre-game to honor the victims.
“The LA Galaxy have been tremendously moved by the outpouring of support from around the world to those who have been affected by the recent Boston Marathon bombings and wanted to assist those families by making this donation,” said Galaxy President Chris Klein in a release issued through the club's website. “We consider our club to be a family and we were pained to learn that Southern California native John Odom, the father-in-law of our former goalkeeper Matt Reis, was one of those who were injured in Monday’s attacks. Matt will always be a member of the Galaxy family and we are all thinking of him and his family in this time of need.”
