Welcome to Hazen Volleyball

Dear Friends and Family, 

Volleyball is a unique sport that teaches hard work, dedication, discipline, the importance of teamwork, individual accountability, humility and a sense of accomplishment.  These lessons promote self-worth, respect and confidence:  characteristics that will help me in school and in life.  We are coming to the end our first season in the NPSL’s competitive 4A division, where our hard work has allowed us to challenge some of the best teams in the league. 

Team gear and team camps that our team needs to be successful can be pretty expensive. Team uniforms and warm-ups help us to look and feel prepared as a team at matches.  Team camps are a great opportunity for team bonding, skill-building and exposure to expert coaching from local university coaches. Thanks to the donations we received last year, we were able to send our entire team to the University of Oregon camp.  We received excellent coaching from the U of O staff that really helped get our season off to a great start. 

New uniforms, warm-ups, and team camps for next year will cost $7,100 and to date we have raised $1,300 through car washes and concessions.  Since you likely don’t need any more “stuff,” instead of asking you to purchase cookie dough or to buy magazines to raise money, I would like to simply ask you for a tax deductible donation to help the Hazen team.  To donate by check, please make payable to Hazen Booster Club (501c3 tax ID # 27-0494421) and mail to Hazen High School Attn: Zach Orcutt 1101 Hoquiam Ave NE, Renton, WA 98059.  Please put “Volleyball team” on the memo line.  If you prefer to donate online, here is the link to the Hazen Booster Club website: http://hazenboosters.org/site/?page_id=2799 

If you work for a company that does gift matching, would you please submit this letter so that we can take advantage of those corporate funds, too?  Thank you in advance for whatever donation you can provide.  

Sincerely,

Hazen Volleyball
