The Lincoln College Women’s Volleyball team’s upcoming home match on Tuesday, August 27th vs the St. Louis College of Pharmacy will be a match dedicated to raising awareness and donations for the Humane Society of Logan County (HSLC).
Members of 2019 Lincoln College Women’s Volleyball team have recently begun doing volunteer work for the HSLC, and the team will look to use the match as a way to promote the mission of the Humane Society and to collect needed items.
HSLC co-managers Mary Dowdel and Wanda Stevens are excited about the partnership that has developed between their organization and the LC players. “We are certainly grateful that the girls are interested in volunteering their time,” said Dowdel. “They have been doing a good job here at the shelter and it’s nice to have young, energetic people around to help with the daily tasks.”
Lincoln College Head Coach Mark Tippett is pleased with the way his players have taken to the opportunity. “We have a lot of animal lovers on our team, and the HSLC facility is so close to campus that starting a relationship with their organization was a natural fit,” said Coach Tippett. “So far, the players have enjoyed the experience and we look forward to helping out when needed all year long.”
Prior to the start of the match on Tuesday, Coach Tippett will be announcing ways the public and LC Volleyball fans can help support their cause.
“We will be accepting monetary donations at the gate for this match and we will have a bin set up where attendees can leave donation items which will be passed on to the HSLC,” said Tippett. “We will have the bin set up in the gym lobby throughout the season, so members of the public can drop off donations there any time.”
According to Dowdel and Stevens, items which the HSLC is most in need of at this time include Purina Cat Chow (blue bag), Purina Kitten chow (yellow bag), Purina Puppy chow, bottled water for volunteers, Clorox bleach, detergent, paper towels and 6lb or 14lb bags of dog food (any brand).
Game time on the 27th is set for 6:30 PM. For more information on this event or the LC Volleyball program in general, please visit www.lincolnlynxsports.com or contact Coach Tippett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
