Union Catholic Volleyball Team Raises Funds And Awareness For Autism

SCOTCH PLAINS – Union Catholic Volleyball recently participated in “Spike Out Autism,” a full-day event consisting of a clinic designed for special needs children to learn skill-building exercises and play volleyball centered games, as well as varsity, junior varsity, and freshmen matches against Paramus High School.

Partnering with Autism Family Times, Coach Nancy Saggio and the UC Volleyball team were able to raise $2,897.50, including admission at the door and a concession stand with donated food.

Proceeds from the event were given to Autism Family Times and Crossroads School in Westfield, a school established to provide an innovative education to children between the ages of 3 and 12 diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders. Crossroads School will use the donations to underwrite Community Based Instruction, a program that provides monthly opportunities for its students to apply academic and communication skills in real-world settings.
