We are pleased to announce that our title sponsor Mankiewicz Coatings has become the founding investor in the Lowcountry United youth academy. Lowcountry United through its partnership with Ladson Youth Organization has recently begun offering an in house youth soccer program in the Summerville/Ladson area to soccer players between ages 5-11 years old. Through this partnership Ladson Youth Organization has allowed Lowcountry United the usage of its old baseball field which provides a large parcel of land that has remained unused for quite some time, this field will be and is currently being used to train and grow the soccer opportunities offered to the surrounding under served Summerville/ Ladson areas.
Lowcountry United has begun a field redevelopment initiative on in order to raise a minimum goal of $5,000 to invest in growing/improving the grass on the field, leveling of certain areas of the field, tree & fence removal, field maintenance equipment, etc. Mankiewicz Coatings has been a longtime supporter of the vision of Lowcountry United regarding our grassroots focus on community reinvestment which we are excited to announce that Mankiewicz has agreed to be the founding investor with contributing over half of our minimum investment goal towards the facility
“I am so very excited and thankful to continue to have Mankiewiz Coatings support for our club. For over 2 years now we have worked with this fantastic company and I can personally tell you that they are like family to this club. Fabian & the entire Mankiewicz leadership team truly are a company that share our vision of giving back to our community. The youth academy is a wonderful opportunity for our club and the community to be able to offer soccer opportunities in a safe and fun environment. In order to give back to the community it is vital that we as a club are able to provide a proper facility that is suitable for the kids which is really what this re-development initiative is all about. We are pleased and very thankful to Mankiewicz for always supporting our community initiatives. The work is not over though and I truly hope that other local businesses will join us in this vision for our local kids and come on board as a community investor in the facility so we can continue growing the offerings to our youth of the area” Alan Bahadori | Executive Director of Lowcountry United
