Students from Bonita Street Elementary School put the finishing touches on the Landon Donovan mural.

“This community has been a huge part of my life – I would’ve never imagined that I would’ve spent 10 years here in Carson every day – and I feel a huge responsibility to give back to it,” said LA Galaxy legend Landon Donovan. 

“I hope that this mural inspires students so that when they look at it, they think that anything is possible,” said Donovan.
