As part of a successful team effort, Gonzales Soccer Club has received more than $3,300 in both funds and equipment from Gonzales Tire Company 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 Rhonda Lewis from Gonzales Tire Company.  “Everyone at Gonzales Tire Company 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 Gonzales Tire Company.”
