Home dedication mutually warm
There will be a lot of mutual warmth going around on Sunday.
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs womenâ€TMs basketball team will feel the warmth that comes with doing a good deed. The Castanon family will experience warmth as a result of that good deed.
Habitat for Humanity will dedicate the Castanonâ€TMs renovated home at 1019 Maxwell Drive on Sunday at 2 p.m. On Sept. 3, the UCCS womenâ€TMs basketball team spent the day at the home installing the insulation that will help protect the family from the elements.
â€œThe girls were able to meet the family,â€ said UCCS coach Jessika Stratton. â€œThey were able to see who they were doing this for.â€
The project was an illustration of two things: Strattonâ€TMs drive to give back to the Colorado Springs community in which she was raised and her dedication to giving her players a fully-rounded college experience.
â€œCollege is a time where we learn new things and giving back to those less fortunate is one of those important life lessons,â€ said Stratton. â€œIâ€TMm happy we were able to help the Castanon family, and Iâ€TMm equally happy with the positive experience we had.â€
