Tire center donates to soccer program
The Michelin Soccer Program and Boulevard Tire Center donated more than $436 in both funds and equipment to Ormond Beach Soccer Club.
These funds are used to provide scholarships, uniforms and other soccer essentials for the participating leagues.
The Michelin Soccer Program partners tire dealers with local youth soccer organizations, providing the dealers the opportunity to reach out to the community.
Bill Baker of Boulevard Tire Center at 330 W. Granada Blvd., Ormond Beach, 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."
