William Jessup University's Women's Volleyball hosts Justice is Served Event
For the fourth straight year, statistics will take on added importance October 20 when the William Jessup University women's volleyball team plays a 7 p.m. home game against Simpson University. The game and WJU's accompanying stats will serve a unique benefit, entitled "Justice is Served." Funds raised from all participating games will go to support William Jessup's Justice Coalition, which consists of organizations that include Agape International Missions, International Justice Mission and Invisible Children. All proceeds provide support for these organizations that work to eradicate human trafficking, sexual slavery and forced labor. The teams will seek to raise support by collecting sponsors for every "Kill," "Dig" or "Ace." Attendees can also buy a raffle ticket, t-shirt or baked goods at the game to benefit the cause. "This is just one way that we can all come together using our God-given talents to put an end to tremendous evil," said senior Hannah Baldwin. Horrifically, statistics report that an estimated 10 million people are victims of human trafficking each year. The goal is to raise awareness and support for the organizations fighting to stop these heinous crimes. The night is centered on bringing hope to the many children who are trafficked and abused every day.
