In the Spring Break of 2018, DC Hyper Futsal organized a charity donation movement to collect used cleats and soccer clothing and distribute it to disadvantaged kids in Brazil as an incentive to keep kids out of the street and playing sports instead. The donation initiative had the participation of DC United and the City of Hortolandia.
Two of our players, Matt Matos and Stiven Jimenes traveled to Hortolandia in the State of Sao Paulo and helped with the product distribution and played with the local Brazilian kids. The experience was great for both sides and we are now working towards expanding the program to other parts of Brazil as well as other developing countries.
Thank you so much for all parties involved
