Blanco County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity received a donation of $1730.70 from Claudia Taylor Johnson High School volleyball team. The Jaguars, under the experienced leadership of Assistant Athletic Director/Head Volleyball Coach Nicole Blakeman, staged a benefit co-ed volleyball tournament on June 17 at the Johnson High campus gyms in San Antonio’s North East ISD.
With the guidance of Coach Blakeman, the Jaguar volleyball team generated ideas, designed t-shirts, and conducted the tournament, including refereeing the games, working the concession stand, selling T-shirts, and forming high school co-ed teams.
The team parents were invaluable in making cash donations above the tournament fees and in creating their own teams to compete enthusiastically in the tournament’s Recreation Division. Adult co-ed teams from around the city and from as far as Corpus Christi competed in the Power Division and the Recreation Division. High school co-ed teams competed in the Student Division.
Since Blanco County Chapter consists only of volunteers with no paid staff, every penny of the donation will go directly into building another Habitat home in Blanco County. Austin Habitat for Humanity, which is the parent affiliate of Blanco County Chapter, supports the local chapter by overseeing the financial transactions, the family selection process, and the quality of each Habitat home built.
