It’s the season of giving around the city, and Columbus Crew midfielder Darlington Nagbe is kicking things up a notch — or maybe 550 notches to be exact.

Darlington donated 550 Adidas soccer balls to Columbus Recreation and Parks on Tuesday, Dec. 13 to help supply the local organization + increase accessibility to the game. And if you want to join in on the donations, stop by Field to drop off soccer balls that will be donated back to CRP.

Can’t make it downtown? No worries. Select Meijer locations will also accept donated soccer balls.
