Lady Miners help at Hospitality House
The 2013 Nevada Union girls volleyball program, including managers and players, will dedicate a two- to three-hour practice session assisting Hospitality House director Doug Lautzenhiser in preparing marketing and fundraising material relative to the grand opening of Hospitality House planned for the winter of 2013.
The project involves preparing and processing fundraising packets and working together to collate information for distribution to funding agencies and potential donors.
The new permanent housing structure called “Utah’s Place” will provide housing for Nevada County’s most vulnerable population.
The 2013 Nevada Union Lady Miners will donate 88 hours of volunteer services as a group, and many more individual hours will be forthcoming from the players.
Additionally, the project will include readying the building for occupancy, including, cleaning, painting and landscaping.
This project teaches the girls that many people in our community need help in securing housing, jobs and mental health/substance abuse services. As able-bodied healthy athletes, it is imperative to give back to those in our community who are struggling.
The coaching staff at Nevada Union teaches players that they have an obligation and inherent responsibility to stay involved in the community that supports them and to represent young student-athletes with grace and humility.
It is with great enthusiasm that these young women athletes volunteer with opening Utah’s Place in Grass Valley.
