The Sons of Ben and MLS Philadelphia 2010 will be following through tomorrow on their drive to "help kick hunger."
They will be arriving at 11 a.m. tomorrow and delivering $2501 and 600 pounds of food to The Bernardine Center, 2625 W. Ninth St., in Chester.
The group will include Chester Mayor Wendell Butler; Bryan James, the president of the supporters association called the Sons of Ben; Sandy Drain, Sons of Ben 2008 food drive chairman; and Nick Sakiewicz, CEO & Operating Partner, Keystone Sports & Entertainment, the ownership group of MLS Philadelphia 2010.
Last year the group raised $1500 and 550 pounds of food.
The Bernardine Center is a nonprofit organization that provides a helping hand to low-income Chester residents by distributing emergency or supplemental food and supplies.
This year, the Sons of Ben have raised $2,501 and 600 pounds of food—up significantly from last year’s more than $1,500 and 550 pounds of food.
MLS Philadelphia 2010 asked attendees of their stadium groundbreaking ceremony earlier this month to bring canned food contributions and made a donation of $500.
