Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles-based Deportivo Chivas USA was presented the Heritage Award at the Aquarium’s annual Noches de Estrellas event. The organization promotes children’s literacy campaigns and soccer sessions for underserved youth and children with disabilities.
Through their 2011 Greener Goals campaign, Chivas USA has partnered with Heal the Bay, the Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation, and the Aquarium of the Pacific to conduct a recycling contest for schools in the Los Angeles area. Also, the team organizes beach clean-ups and hosts Earth-friendly organizations and activities at their games.
