In the Community

United Drives benefits worthy non-profit organizations in the area by collecting much-needed items to help with each beneficiary's mission. This initiative assigns a different charity drive for each month of the MLS regular season, including the collection of soccer equipment, food, children's books, and school supplies.


  • D.C. United will have a United Drives effort each month of the Major League Soccer regular season.
  • A collection location will be set up outside of Gate A at RFK Stadium.
  • The collection will begin two hours prior to kickoff.
  • The collection will end fifteen (15) minutes into start of the game.
  • By donating four individually packed items, participants will receive a "United Drives Buy One, Get One Free" ticket voucher, redeemable for that day's match or any other MLS regular season home game.


If your organization would like to become a United Drives beneficiary, please submit a proposal to apritchet@dcunited.com. All proposals must be received by December 1 to be considered for the following year's Drives.

For more information on the United Drives initiative or any of D.C. United's community relations programs, please contact Victor Melara by email at vmelara@dcunited.com or call (202) 587-5453.
