Staker Parson Companies is supporting local refugees by joining forces with the non-profit organization Refugee Soccer during an event held Saturday at 17th South River Park. The community is invited to come watch soccer and visit the Staker Parson Companies booth for a free FatBoy ice cream sandwich. Playoff matches will be held at 3:30 PM and 5:30 PM on the fields. The address is 1150 West 1700 South, Salt Lake City, Utah.

“The vision of Refugee Soccer is to connect the large refugee community here with the mainstream business and soccer communities in order to remove barriers and enrich the lives of both sides of an unnecessary line that we hope will soon be erased,” Refugee Soccer founder Adam Miles said. “We are so happy to have the support of Staker Parson and know it will help the lives of dozens of our refugee neighbors and inspire hundreds more.”

Staker Parson has made a financial commitment to support the Refugee Soccer program this year and is looking to hire hard-working, reliable refugees who are interested in seeking employment. Staker Parson Companies will have representatives on site to discuss the company and talk with refugees about available career opportunities during the Adult Refugee Soccer League playoff matches.

“We are excited to be a part of this event to support our communities and the people who live there by providing them a great employment opportunity” Tina Olson, Staker Parson Companies Recruiting Coordinator said.
