The Gustavus Adophus volleyball team will be hosting “Backpacks For Nicaragua”, a fundraising effort benefitting the children of Nicaragua.

The “Gusties” will provide donated backpacks and other school supplies to Nicaraguan children who are in need of such items. Because of poor school conditions and the instability of local economies, Nicaraguan children have less than adequate school supplies. Backpacks have been identified as an item of great need in many of these impoverished areas.

Gustavus volleyball Is asking the Gustavus and St. Peter communities for their assistance in donating backpacks that will be delivered to at-need children in Nicaragua by the team this summer.

Updates can be found on the team’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Fans are also encouraged to post and follow Backpacks for Nicaragua using the hashtag #ProjectNicaragua.
