Nexen, Manchester City Promote Community Initiative
Nexen Tire America Inc. recently partnered with Manchester City Football Club to promote its global Cityzens Giving community initiative.
Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Nexen and the United Kingdom-based soccer organization provided on-site support for the program in Los Angeles, Calif. Manchester City coaches delivered training to 16 youth soccer players.
Through a combination of classroom sessions and workshops, the players also honed "their leadership and life skills, practical planning and an understanding of how to use soccer as a tool" to provide education about the benefits of exercise and nutrition.
Nexen also donated $1,500 toward holiday meals that were provided to needy families and also provided three sets of its NPrix AH8 Grand Touring all-season tire for use on transportation vans operated by East LA Rising, a community group.
"Nexen continues to prioritize involvement in our local communities," says Megan Wentz, Nexen's marekting manager.
