Peach Chevrolet donates soccer equipment to Brewton YMCA

Peach Chevrolet to provide Brewton Area YMCA with new equipment, monetary contribution and instructional clinics

Peach Chevrolet is partnering with the Brewton Area YMCA. Peach Chevrolet has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Soccer program to provide new equipment, invitations to free instructional clinics, and an opportunity for community members to earn donations for their league via a Test Drive fundraiser.

“Playing the game of soccer helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support,” said Hal Whitman, sales manager and liaison for Peach Chevrolet. “Peach Chevrolet and Chevrolet Youth Soccer are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Brewton. Chevrolet believes that in play, there are possibilities and supports the spirit of teamwork that soccer instills in its players.”

This year marks Chevrolet’s Youth Soccer program’s eighth year, and since its introduction has helped aid local teams, benefiting young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. In 2016, more than 600 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.

Peach Chevrolet will present the teams with kits that include useful items such as equipment bags, pop-up goals, soccer balls, and Chevrolet Youth Soccer t-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring instructors from UK Elite.

In addition, Peach Chevrolet will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Brewton Area YMCA.  Sponsored leagues across the country will have the chance to earn additional funds as community members take test drives at their partnering dealership to help support the league.

“Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built for families, safety and fun, so we encourage young people and their parents to make Chevrolet the official vehicle of their household,” said Whitman.
