The Lumberjacks are doing their best to give back to the local community, and it turns out their best is pretty good.
With more than 500 hours of community service over the past year, the Humboldt State women’s volleyball team was third best in the nation among NCAA Division-II schools.
Included in the events that the Lumberjacks volunteered for was the Kids Volleyball Camp, along with the MLK Day of Service that the university hosted in January.
Members of the team also volunteered to help out at Freshwater Farm Reserve, Jefferson Center, Oh SNAP! Food Panty and Manila Community Park.
“Our entire roster and coaching staff volunteers their time at the youth camp to make this experience one that will be as beneficial and memorable for the youth in our community,” head coach Kelly Wood said. “We have such a wonderfully supportive community who shows unconditional support for all of our athletic programs here at HSU.
“We love having the opportunity to work with the young up-and-coming volleyball athletes and the kids really enjoy the interactions they get to have with our student athletes. It’s an event that continues to grow and we look forward to it every year.”
