PHILADELPHIA CREAM, July 23, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Last week, the United States Women’s National Team began their quest to win it all by Tokyo. Like Julie ertz and her teammates represent our country on the pitch, they will actively change lives off the pitch.

Throughout their stay in Tokyo, The Ertz Family Foundation will team up with The Athletes’ Corner and Feeding America® to help provide 50,000 meals * for every goal scored by the USWNT, plus 50,000 meals for every game won!
These meals will be donated to various food banks through United States, allowing our Nation’s team to feed our nation.
“Zach and Julie are amazing people who constantly seek to strengthen families and serve others like Christ would,” said Brennen Creer, co-founder of The Athletes’ Corner. “We couldn’t be more proud to partner with the Ertz Family Foundation and Feeding America® to create an avenue in which the lives of so many families can be changed.”
