UNIROYAL® TIRE AND ETD DISCOUNT TIRE CENTERS ARE DRIVING IN DONATIONS TO BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF WAYNE SENSIBLE SOCCER
WAYNE, N.J., (Jan. 6, 2009) — ETD Discount Tire Centers and Uniroyal® Tire have raised donations of over $800 in both funds and equipment for Boys & Girls Club of Wayne Sensible Soccer. This is thanks to the Uniroyal Soccer Program, a grassroots initiative that annually supports youth soccer all over the country.
The program has been a major supporter of youth soccer for the past nine years. Alongside its tire dealers, Uniroyal Tire has donated nearly $11 million in funds, including over 818,000 soccer balls, since 2000.
“We were excited to be a part of the soccer program,” said Philip Pereira of ETD Discount Tire Centers. “It’s been a great way to do our part for the community. It’s a wonderful feeling to support our youth, especially through an organization such as Boys & Girls Club of Wayne Sensible Soccer. I love seeing everyone who comes in, and the kids are ecstatic when they get the soccer ball!”
“We started this program to give something back to organizations like Boys & Girls Club of Wayne Sensible Soccer, who do valuable work for the children of the community,” said Uniroyal Tire Brand Marketing Director Kaz Holley. “Working together with excellent dealers like ETD Discount Tire Centers is the ideal way to support the people who work so hard to keep kids active and involved. This has been another great year for the Uniroyal Soccer Program.”
