Chevrolet Kicks Off Summer With Soccer Donation In Detroit

Stocks in this article: GM

DETROIT, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chevrolet will make a special delivery later this month of 1,350 virtually indestructible One World Futbols, bringing the "power of play" to children in Detroit with the help of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit.

"We're applying our very global partnership with the One World Futbol Project at a very local level," General Motors North America President Mark Reuss said Tuesday. "Thousands of children right here in Detroit will benefit from this donation."

Chevrolet teamed up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit to donate balls to the Detroit Police Athletic League and 23 Detroit Public Schools. The balls will be distributed beginning April 27 at PAL's summer soccer kick-off event at Historic Fort Wayne.

Chevrolet and the GM Foundation are both committed to supporting the City of Detroit. Over the past three years, the GM Foundation has granted nearly $21.5 million to vital nonprofits and cultural institutions within the city, including United Way for Southeastern Michigan, Focus: HOPE, Karmanos Cancer Institute, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Michigan Science Center.

One World Futbols are designed to outlast and outplay hundreds of regular soccer balls, sustaining play in any environment.  The ball never needs a pump and never deflates even when punctured, making it ideal for play in all types of terrain such as concrete, blacktop, dirt, rocky fields or grass, and harsh environments.

"Our mission at One World Futbol Project is to keep the spirit of play alive for youth around the world through the simple power of a durable ball,'" said Lisa Tarver co-founder and chief operating officer at One World Futbol Project. "We are excited to join Chevrolet in making a positive difference for thousands of children around Detroit and witnessing the power of play in action."

The initiative is part of Chevrolet's three-year partnership with One World Futbol Project that pledges to place 1.5 million One World Futbols with youth in war-stricken zones, refugee camps, disaster areas, and other underprivileged communities around the world.
