12/6/2012 2:28:00 PM Tire Pro Automotive helps Michelin roll out soccer balls for AYSO
The Michelin Soccer Program, Tire Pro Automotive - Camp Verde and Tire Pro Automotive - Sedona together donated more than $4,000 in both funds and equipment to AYSO Region 232. These funds go a long way in helping to provide scholarships, uniforms and other soccer essentials for the participating leagues. Giving back to the community is a top priority for Michelin.
The Michelin Soccer Program partners tire dealers with local youth soccer organizations, providing the dealers the opportunity to reach out to the community. The leagues in turn receive funds and equipment. The soccer leagues are sent certificates that can be redeemed at the dealer's store for a free soccer ball during a 30-day promotional period, while supplies last. After a 60-day tire rebate promotion included on the certificate, Michelin donates $2 to the soccer organization for each tire sold during the program.
Don Hanks of Tire Pro Automotive in Camp Verde and Sedona is an avid supporter of the program. "The Michelin Soccer Program is an incredible way to connect with families and young players," he said. "The look on the child's face as you hand them their soccer ball is priceless. I encourage all the Michelin dealers to find a local soccer league and support them through this program."
