Our commitment to the community goes well beyond the basketball arena. Each year, the Storm staff engages in several community service activities. Some individuals volunteer at basketball clinics, while others take time to plant trees. On multiple occasions during the year, we make it a point to close our office for a day and spend the time together working with a local non-profit organization.
In December 2017, the Storm chose to empower women by volunteering at Dress for Success Seattle. The group sorted through clothing donations and helped to organize their boutiques with the end goal of providing women in need with the best professional attire and accessories for upcoming job interviews.
In March 2018, the Storm Front Office staff assembled over 250 centerpieces that will be used at the YWCA Seattle and Snohomish Inspire Annual luncheons. Items donated from YWCA’s partners such as tooth brushes, toothpaste, shampoo and deodorant, were turned into beautiful table centerpieces. Following the luncheons, these centerpieces will be donated back to the women of the YWCA as these everyday items are critical to their health and well-being and not typically covered by assistance or food stamps.
