| Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2007

Armstrong County YMCA is receiving a donation of more than $1,400 and equipment from Morris Tire Co. and Uniroyal Tire as part of a longstanding program designed by Uniroyal to support youth soccer across the nation, Uniroyal announced recently.

In its eighth year of sponsoring youth soccer, Uniroyal and its dealers have provided 735,500 free soccer balls to soccer families across America and have donated a total of $10 million in funds and equipment, the company said.

"The Uniroyal Soccer Program has been a perfect way for us to show our appreciation to the community," said Arnold Ray Morris of Morris Tire Co. "It's been an honor to meet the families connected with the Armstrong County YMCA, and we really enjoy the children's smiles when they receive their free soccer ball."

Uniroyal Tire Brand Marketing Director Kaz Holley said, "Every year we have exceptional dealers such as Morris Tire Co. participating in our soccer initiative, which helps organizations like the Armstrong County YMCA provide very worthwhile programs for local children."

Uniroyal also has announced a contest in which the grand prize winner will receive a "free soccer season," including tires, gas, registration and automotive services for the 2008 soccer season. Uniroyal will also contribute $1,000 to the grand prize winner's soccer league. First prize winners will be selected monthly to receive free gas for the season. The sweepstakes runs through Nov. 30.

More information on the Uniroyal Tire Soccer Program is available online at www.uniroyal.com. Arnold Ray Morris, of Morris Tire Co., can be contacted at 724-543-2403 or at 496 Butler Road, East Franklin.
