Lake Country Soccer Receives Grant and Equipment

As part of a successful team effort, Lake Country Soccer has received more than $1,650 in both funds and equipment from GL Moore Tire Pros and Uniroyal® Tire. The national program, currently in its 11th year, continues to be a major supporter of youth soccer. Partnering with its tire dealers, Uniroyal® Tire has donated nearly $13 million in funds and equipment, including over one million soccer balls, since 2000 through the Uniroyal Soccer Program.

“This program is about giving back and helping my community in supporting our local youth,” said Mark Moore from GL Moore Tire Pros. “Everyone at GL Moore Tire Pros is pleased to be taking part in such a unique initiative. It’s great to see families in the store and the parents are as appreciative as the children to receive a free soccer ball.”

“We enjoy being able to offer such a successful program to our dealers and their communities again this year,” said Ashley Ramos, Uniroyal® Tire marketing communications manager. “Providing a national program, which is implemented on a local level, wouldn’t be possible without a solid commitment from dealers like GL Moore Tire Pros.”

Uniroyal® Tire is one of the world's leading tire brands for passenger and commercial cars, pick-ups, light trucks, minivans and sport utility vehicles. Dating back to 1892, Uniroyal® Tire has developed a reputation for providing high-quality, affordable tires including its Tiger Paw® and Laredo® series.
