Phoenix, AZ – Pro’s Ranch Markets and the Provenzano family are pleased to support children’s sports activities by providing the ingredients for fun to the children in the community.
Beginning last Wednesday, Pro’s Ranch Market has been giving away 600 soccer balls to the neighborhood kids at each of their 7 Phoenix area locations.
“Sometimes a friendly soccer game with neighborhood kids is what can bring a community together,” said Rick Provenzano, the company’s VP of Operations.
Pro’s Ranch Market has a variety of community-driven, family-oriented events almost every month,” Mike Provenzano, the CEO said of the Pros Ranch Markets community events. “This is how we say thank you for being great customers, neighbors and friends.” Mr. Provenzano further added, “We want to thank the community we serve.” The events vary and range from Easter Egg Hunts, Back-To-School-Backpack Giveaways, Health-Care Fairs and Christmas Toys Giveaways.
15 Volunteers are also needed to help give out soccer balls, give out food samples and help with the charity work in the community.
