Not only did the Timbers show up in force for our soccer-in-the-park program this week, on Friday June 2 they made us the designated partner for the MLS Every Save Makes a Difference program, which donates $500 for every save a team’s goalie makes during a given game. Unfortunately, the Timbers dominated San Jose on Friday night at Providence Park, as the Quakes went down to 10 men in the first half, leaving Timbers goalie Jake Gleeson with only one official save to make all game!

But still we feel very fortunate, as that $500 will go a long way. Thanks to the Portland Timbers, the biggest-hearted team in MLS, for their continued commitment to the communities around them.

Jake Gleeson

Goalie Jake Gleeson has gone from little-used backup to first-team fixture on the Portland Timbers. A Portland resident for 8 years now, he is heavily involved in the community.
