We have almost 150 member clubs that have been impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. In addition to our members and their families, numerous school and college volleyball programs will be affected. They may have lost access to their training facilities or worse, lost their gym all together.
We challenge our JVA community to help.
JVA has set up a fund with our partner, RallyMe, to help our members get back on their feet and make them whole.
JVA is starting the fund with a donation of $5,000.
PrepVolleyball is donating free advertising and a portion of their September subscriptions.
RallyMe has waived it's 5% fee.
Together we will make sure every penny donated goes to a good and worthy cause. If you would rather write a check you can make it out to JVA and mail to our office at 1414 Underwood Avenue, Suite 404, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53213.
We have set up a committee to allocate funds. Any funds not used will go to Salvation Army to help the communities harmed by Harvey and Irma. This will not be a short-term project. It will take months and even years to rebuild.
They may have lost all their equipment, uniforms, etc. They may have lost their homes and personal affects. Their athletes may not even have shoes, knee pads etc.
Our hearts go out to them. But empathy is not enough.
We can make a difference. Please donate! But don’t stop there. There are many ways you can reach out to your personal volleyball community to help out and make a bigger impact.
- Share the Rally Me link with your club members
- Put out a donation jar in your facility, at your tryouts, at your events
- Run a 50-50 raffle at tryouts or tournaments
- Run a club-wide rummage sale
- Host a spaghetti dinner
The list of ideas is endless, be creative. This is a great community service project for your club.
Let’s show the sports world that volleyball people are the best. We have set a goal of $50,000. Let’s show the world what we all can do.
