Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- A Columbia business is using its community outreach efforts to support a group of amputee soccer players.

Southern Baked Candle Company, a custom candle shop, has used its "Loopy For Life" drive to support various non-profit organizations. The company asks its Facebook fans to vote for their favorite charity and this year's winner is the American Amputee Soccer Society.

For ever fruit loopy candle that is sold, Southern Baked Candle will donate $10 to the AASS.

Eric Westover, who is a goalkeeper for the U.S. National Amputee Soccer Team, says the money is invaluable for his organization which continues to provide avenues for amputees to participate in competitive soccer.
