Two New England Revolution players, Kevin Alston and Kelyn Rowe, and the soccer team’s mascot Slyde recently joined nine middle school students from the Gardner Pilot Academy in Allston for a back-to-school charitable shopping spree at the Staples store in Brighton.
The items, donated in full by Staples through the Revolution’s school supply charity collection drive, will benefit Cradles to Crayons – a Brighton-based nonprofit that provides children living in homeless or low-income situations with essential items, including clothing, school supplies and toys.
