BOUNTIFUL – Jay’s Tire Pros has been helping local soccer teams and programs for many years with a donations of soccer equipment.
Combined with the Michelin Soccer Program, which partners tire dealers with local youth soccer programs. Jay’s has once again made a donation of more than $2,150, in both funding and equipment, to the Forza Futbol Club, located in Bountiful.
“The Michelin Soccer Program is an incredible way to connect with families and young players,” said Candace Perry of Jay’s Tire Pros. “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.”
The funds help provide scholarships, uniforms and other soccer essentials for the participating leagues.
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.
“Michelin really believes in youth and making sure they are safe and healthy,” said Don Byrd, vice president of Marketing for Michelin Americas Small Tires. “This program is the perfect partnership of all those elements. We look forward to continuing to grow and donate even more equipment and funds in 2013.”
