SilverSummit HealthPlan and ReDirect Youth Outreach Team Up to Collect Donations

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) – SilverSummit Healthplan and ReDirect Youth Outreach are hosting a donation drive, Load Up the Boxing Ring, through July 15.

Cheri Glockner, manager of government relations and marketing at SilverSummit Healthplan, and Marcell LaGrone, co-founder and president of ReDirect Youth Outreach, visited Morning Break.

Through the SilverSummit Healthplan Community Investment Program, ReDirect Youth Outreach received a $75,000 grant to support community health needs, including providing youth recreation to improve health outcomes for adolescents. Founded in 2018, ReDirect Youth Outreach is a nonprofit organization that supports and serves at-risk youth in the community through fitness and boxing to provide an outlet for children’s emotions, build self-confidence, and cope with adversity.

The Load up the Boxing Ring donation drive is designed to build community support and collect donations for items needed to participate in ReDirect Youth Outreach programs. Community members are encouraged to “drop” donations into the boxing ring, including hygiene products, athletic shoes, socks, athletic shorts and shirts, reusable water bottles, sports drinks, and non-perishable protein snacks.

Donations can be dropped off at 1270 E. Plumb Lane, Suite C, Reno, NV 89502 anytime between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. or 2:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. through Monday, July 15.
