Local store gives to Y soccer

STERLING – Blain Farm & Fleet and Michelin Soccer Program staff recently donated more than $570 to the Sterling-Rock Falls Family YMCA.

The money will be used to help provide scholarships, uniforms and other soccer essentials for participating leagues. The program partners tire dealers with youth soccer organizations. Certificates for a free soccer ball are sent to the soccer leagues for redemption at the dealer’s store during a 30-day promotional period, while supplies last. After a 60-day tire rebate promotion on the certificate, Michelin donates $2 to the leagues for each tire sold during the program.

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
