Late last month, as a part of the St. Louis Electrical Connection, NECA members joined the professional soccer club Saint Louis FC on a fundraiser for two holiday season programs.

For the third year in a row, the Electrical Connection and Saint Louis FC hosted a “Christmas in July” fundraiser at Toyota Stadium in Fenton. The team squared off against Bethlehem FC and won 3-0. The charitable event benefited “Stop with a Cop” projects in Ferguson and St. Francois County.
