July 2016 Pastor Pat Barns from Faith Mountain church let me know he had several thousand top quality volleyball sets to give away and wanted to know how to make that happen! Partnership is a mechanism for linking people, resources and together and that’s what Lakewood Connects is all about!
Pat has a members, Ron & Denise Padilla who own Park & Sun Sports. They had the champion sets available to donate. What a gift…now how do we set up giving the gift?
Reg contacted Jeffco superintendent Dan McMinnmee who connected him with the director of P.E. David Yonkee. David was fired up to get the volleyball sets. At an orientation meeting in August Pat and Reg were able to present every school in Jeffco with 4 new volleyball sets!
That’s what partnership is all about!
