The Parent Association of the Levittown District Swim Team, September 2009 – For 20 youth sports organizations demonstrating their commitment to responsibility in and out of the pool, Liberty Mutual will soon make a very memorable contribution, in the amount of a $2,500 Responsible Sports Community Grant. The Parent Association of the Levittown District Swim Team is hoping to be one of them.
Community Grants are part of Liberty Mutual’s Responsible Sports program, which is an ongoing effort championing and celebrating responsibility in youth sports. This community-based program offers meaningful, easy-to-use educational resources for youth sports parents and coaches, including access to on-the-field game and practice preparation tools, as well as self-paced online coursework filled with learning tools, videos, and topics addressing youth sports issues.
“The Liberty Mutual Responsible Sports program targets many of the issues we see happening at youth sporting events by shining a positive light on what it means to be a responsible coach and a responsible sports-parent. Beyond that, Liberty Mutual is making a significant financial contribution to support the efforts of local organizations like The Parent Association of the Levittown District Swim Team,” said Greg Gordon, vice president of Consumer Marketing at Liberty Mutual.
“We, the Parents of Division Avenue and MacArthur High School Students, are engaging in fundraising efforts to enable the district to form a combined high school swim team,” a statement from the group reads. “This is the first time any sport has had to fundraise to get a team for the students. This grant, $2,500, will help our fundraising efforts tremendously and move us closer to the funds needed. You can take pride in being a good community citizen and continue to support our children by participating in this program. Our school’s motto ‘Success for Every Student’ should shine for our swimmers also.”
