AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin FC goaltender Brad Stuver takes the Laundry Project on the road to Uvalde.
Stuver, a longtime supporter of the nonprofit organization that helps provide free laundry services to low-income families, launch a call for donations on Twittersaying people can donate in different ways for the August 7 event.
People can donate to The Laundry Project campaign and Covert Ford will match donations up to $500. The donation goal for the project is $1,000, and as of Wednesday afternoon, the campaign is about 25% toward the goal.
The 4ATX Foundation, the non-profit organization of Austin FC, also sponsors a “kids’ corner” during the project and receives donations of coloring books and children’s books.
Another way to help, Stuver said, is to donate school supplies and other items to teachers through Hope for Uvalde. On the website, there are links to donate to Robb Elementary School teachers’ “wish lists” and to CISD Uvalde’s parent-teacher organization.
For his continued work in the community, Stuver was a finalist for the ESPN Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian of the Year 2022 award along with three other professional athletes.
Stuver missed Austin FC’s 4-3 loss on Sunday to the New York Red Bulls due to COVID-19 and Major League Soccer health and safety protocols. Austin FC plays again at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in Kansas City.
