The Michelin Soccer Program and Tireman Auto Service Centers Ltd. donated more than $1,464 in both funds and equipment to Perrysburg Youth Soccer Association.
The funds help to provide scholarships, uniforms, and more for the participating leagues.
The Michelin Soccer Program partners tire dealers with local youth soccer organizations. The 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.
Casey Walker of Tireman Auto Service Centers in Perrysburg, 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.”
Don Byrd, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Small Tires, said, "We look forward to continuing to grow and donate even more equipment and funds in 2013.”
