Sullivan Tire donates

to soccer program

DERRY — The Michelin Soccer Program and Sullivan Tire Co. Inc. donated more than $650 in both funds and equipment to Derry Soccer Club.

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.

Tim Raymond of Sullivan Tire Co., Inc. in Derry 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.”

To find out more about Sullivan Tire Co. Inc., contact Raymond, 425-7778, at 4 Ashleigh Drive or visit sullivantire.com.
