FCNOVA RECEIVES 2015 PAPE' FAMILY FOUNDATION GRANT
FCNova were approved and announced as one of the 2015 Pape' Family Foundation Grant recipients. Today the benefit of the Pape' Family showed up at the FCNova complex and no doubt the equipment provided will help in so many ways within the Nova and soccer programming community.
Director of Coaching, Eric Simmonsen, mentioned the following, "The Pape' Family are long standing stewards in the Treasure Valley Community. From Bishop Kelly to Genesis Mission to youth soccer over the years, their family's dedication is evident. We are proud to be considered a partner in their mission of seeking to affect in positive ways the communities in which we all reside." Simmonsen noted that after coaching family member Bryan Pape' (Treasure Valley, Capital High School and Seattle Pacific soccer student-athlete) and wokring with Terry Pape' on youth soccer boards for years, it is great to see when relationships come full circle for a community purpose/cause.
The grant monies have allowed FCNova to purchase a John Deere "Gator" and riding lawn mower. Reducing the outsourcing costs within the facilities work around the best soccer complex in the State of Idaho and Treasure Valley. Allowing FCNova to more efficiently run day to day and event operations, along with facility and event maintenance needs. In the end, helping keep the rising costs of youth sports to a minimum and not taxing the membership dollars for much needed facilities equipment. The grant also helps alleviate paid and volunteer hours that were becoming a burden due to lack of resources in order to properly maintain and improve the facilities.
FCNova looks forward to contuing their part within the community in regard to servicing members' interests, activities and values.
