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 March 2018, the Storm Front Office staff assembled over 250 centerpieces that were 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 were 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.
In December 2018, the Storm Front Office volunteered at the Salvation Army’s Toy & Joy event, inventorying toys and helping to setup CenturyLink Event Center as a holiday toy store for families in need of assistance.
