DALLAS/FORT WORTH, TEXAS — Feb. 8, 2024 — The Texas Outlaws, a professional MASL soccer team based in Mesquite, is partnering with Tehuacán USA, the exclusive distributor of Tehuacán Mineral water, to deliver 1,400 bottles of mineral water to the Upbring Head Start Preschool’s South Fort Worth location in Cleburne. Upbring, a leading nonprofit dedicated to advancing child well-being, will host the event on Tuesday, Feb. 20.  Texas Outlaws players will be on hand to greet children and their families.

“We are honored to partner up with such a fantastic organization as Upbring,” expressed Brad Namdar, General Manager and Sporting Director of the Texas Outlaws. “By investing in the wellbeing and nurturing of young minds, we not only safeguard the future of individuals but also fortify the very foundation of our society. We are happy to support communities like Cleburne and Fort Worth, as well as other communities in the state of Texas.”

Tehuacán recently became a sponsor of the Texas Outlaws, and it forged a partnership with Upbring last summer, featuring Upbring's logo and mission on its water bottle labels. For each bottle sold, Tehuacán generously donates to Upbring, contributing to its mission of breaking the cycle of child abuse. Leveraging these partnerships, the three entities are now working together to engage the South Fort Worth community.

"At Tehuacán USA, we are convinced that a healthy lifestyle begins at a young age. As a collaborator in Upbring’s mission to break the cycle of child abuse, we are excited to bring our natural and healthy beverage to communities in Texas like Cleburne and Fort Worth," said Jimmy Garza, CEO of Tehuacán USA. “Together, we can create a positive impact, one bottle at a time.”

In addition to delivering Tehuacán mineral water, the event will include a friendly scrimmage with the Head Start students, providing an opportunity for fun and physical activity. To foster a sense of community and inclusion, the Texas Outlaws are also gifting the children and their families exciting team swag, including complimentary tickets to any of the team's home matches.

Upbring considers strategic collaborations like these integral to raising awareness of their impactful work and expanding their reach to serve even more at-risk children and families across the state.

“It’s heartwarming to see our Cleburne Head Start Preschool supported by the Texas Outlaws and Tehuacán. Our partnership goes beyond delivering water; it’s a reflection of community strength and the magic of collaboration happening in Fort Worth,” said Ryan Park, vice president of marketing and innovation at Upbring. “Big thanks to the Texas Outlaws for their generosity. Together, we’re fostering growth and unity. We hope this sparks more DFW-based organizations to join us in making a real difference — building a healthier, more connected future for our kids.”
