Orange County SC are kicking off their 10th season in 2020, and earlier this week announced the launch of the OCSC Community Foundation. The organization is a 501(c)(3) foundation, to be the charitable wing of the soccer club.
The OCSC Community Foundation will be run by club community relations and event manager Haley Stadnikia, a Michigan native who most recently worked in a similar capacity for the San Jose Earthquakes.
“After many months of preparation, we are extremely excited and proud to launch the OCSC Community Foundation,” said Orange County SC president of business operations Jeff Garner in a team statement. “As a professional sports organization, it is our responsibility to support our local community and we believe that the four pillars coupled with Haley’s leadership and our organizational commitment gives us the ingredients to be successful community partners.”
The organization kicked off their work in the community on Monday by working with Second Harvest Food Bank.
It’s easy to get caught up in our busy, daily lives to forget that 301,000 people are at risk of hunger each month in Orange County. @SecondHarvestFB is able to feed 250,000 each month with help from volunteers. #GiveBack #ForCounty pic.twitter.com/XAjfwzE3WL— Orange County SC (@orangecountysc) January 27, 2020
Having covered the evolution of this club the past five years, it’s fantastic to see this latest development, indicating Orange County SC’s commitment to set deep roots in the community and work to build ties and work with people on a regular basis and in times of need.
Orange County SC will kick off their 10th season on the field with their home opener on March 6 against El Paso Locomotive.
