FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Meijer and NABISCO Announce Donation to Youth Soccer
Meijer and NABISCO are excited to announce the 2015 Kick In for Your Community campaign! This summer, Meijer and NABISCO will donate up to $100,000 in funds to help U.S. Youth Soccer State Associations in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. The Kick in for Your Community campaign will run from May 24th to June 13th, and for every NABISCO product purchased at Meijer during this time, 5¢ will be donated to the youth soccer organizations, up to $100,000.
The Kick in for Your Community donation to U.S. Youth Soccer State Associations greatly benefits local communities and soccer programs, including programs such as Soccer Across America and TOPSoccer. Soccer Across America helps make youth soccer available to lower income children in under-served communities, while TOPSoccer helps children with physical and other disabilities participate.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to get this assist from Meijer and NABISCO,” according to Kris Zander, the Executive Director at Kentucky Youth Soccer. “With soccer’s popularity in the U.S. at an unprecedented, all-time high, now is the perfect time for involvement at the community level. Thank you to Meijer and NABISCO for the support!”
Kick in for Your Community is also getting a little kick in from U.S. Women’s soccer star Alex Morgan! To see how youth soccer helped shape Alex, and for more information on the Kick in for Your Community campaign, visit meijer.com/kickin.
