Atlanta United's December in the community

The season may be over, but Atlanta United is as busy as ever this holiday season, getting involved and giving back to the city we call home. There are two primary events this month that can use the help of Five Stripes nation. Here's how you can help us give back:

Pitch in with Parky

Atlanta United Capitan, Michael Parkhurst will be holding a canned food drive at the Atlantic Station Team Store on Sunday, December 10 starting at 12pm. Bring a canned food item and get an autograph and picture with Parky!
