Singletary Tire, Michelin help support YMCA

Staff report

THOMASVILLE — The Michelin Soccer Program and Singletary Tire Service Inc. donated more than $1,150 in both funds and equipment to the Thomasville YMCA and Youth Center. 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.

Curtis Singletary of Singletary Tire Service Inc. in Thomasville, 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.”
