Sullivan Tire supports soccer
DERRY — The Derry Soccer Club has received more than $962 in money and equipment from Sullivan Tire and Michelin through the Michelin Soccer Program.
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 Sullivan Tire during the 30-day soccer ball giveaway, $2 is donated back to the soccer organization.
“Whether you have done this program for one year or more than 13, you’re going to have a blast,” said Mark Sullivan of Sullivan 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.”
