LA Galaxy staff joined team mascot Cozmo in personally delivering soccer balls, goals and LA Galaxy backpacks full of school supplies, in addition to testing out the equipment with youth at LTSC’s new Terasaki Budokan Multi-Purpose Facility – funded in part from a $100,000 macro grant from the AEG Community Foundation in 2019.
