Eastern Development Program (EDP) teams give back to the community

Last weekend, teams from the Eastern Development Program (EDP) showed their support for the victims of Hurricane Sandy by collecting items at the MSSL MAPS CUP held in Hammonton, N.J. Those items, which included food, water, clothing and blankets, will be distributed to families in need across the area.

EDP teams also honored Autumn Pasquale, who passed away late last month in the New Jersey community of Clayton. Pasquale, who was 12 years old, played for South Jersey Soccer Club.

In recent tributes to Pasquale, players have worn blue or gold ribbons (her favorite colors) and displayed her number 14 during their games.
