The Delphos Soccer Association has received $1,950 in donations and equipment from 4-K Tire and Michelin North America. Over the last 13 years, the Michelin Soccer Program has been able to donate funds and equipment because of committed dealers like 4-K Tire. These donations play an instrumental role in helping youth stay in the game by funding scholarships, uniforms, field upkeep and other essentials. This community program partners Michelin tire dealers with local soccer organizations nationwide. The dealers purchase customized soccer balls which are redeemed with certificates sent to the soccer organization. For every MICHELIN® tire sold to the general public at 4-K Tire during the 30-day soccer ball giveaway, $2 is donated back to the soccer organization. The donations are used to provide scholarships, uniforms and other equipment for the soccer leagues. Michelin emphasizes safety on the road and this translates to the soccer field as well. “Whether you have done this program for one year or more than 13, you’re going to have a blast,” said Kristin Reynolds with 4-K Tire. “Kids love it, parents love it, and all of us at the dealership really enjoy being able to interact with the soccer community. There’s nothing better than seeing the direct positive impact it has on everyone involved.” The Michelin Soccer Program promotes activity while facilitating a lifelong partnership between the Michelin tire dealer and the soccer organization. “Michelin is always looking for unique ways to give back, and the perfect partnership is between our dealers and community soccer leagues,” said Jason Strand, Michelin Marketing Manager. “We’ve had great success with this program over the past 13 years and we look forward to many more.” To learn more about the Michelin Soccer Program, visit MichelinSoccer.com.
