HUB 300 Club seeks to pay of the sports center's mortgage by the end of September

The HUB Sports Center provides events that have a positive impact on our youth and community. They raised $2.9M and financed the purchase of the facility at the end of 2017. They only have $300,000 left to pay off the mortgage on the building. The goal is to pay this off by the end of September and are seeking 300 people/businesses to join the HUB 300 Club by donating $1,000. Through this payoff, the HUB can reinvest those dollars into our programs and outreach activities.

Kicking off this campaign is Washington State Gatorade Player of the Year, Lexie Hull, who designated $1,000 from Gatorade to the HUB. Consider joining Lexie and being a part of the HUB 300 Club. The IRS has designated the HUB Sports Center as a 501c3 nonprofit company (26-0173199). Donations to the HUB are tax deductible
