Steven Hauck Memorial Fund Supports Children at DVSAC
On February 9, 2012, The Soroptimist International of Nevada City graciously donated $425.00 to establish the Steven Hauck Memorial Fund through Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition. The fund is established for the purpose of providing the children of families that have suffered with domestic violence with school and educational needs. The fund began as members of Soroptimist International Nevada City dropped their weekly change into a small bank. “When Steven (a son of a member) found out what we were doing, he decided to donate all his change he had collected since he had been recovering from an automobile accident.” said Cindy Hintz, SINC President. When Steven passed away a few months ago, his mother, Donna Hauck, brought the money to contribute to the fund. The members decided unanimously to name the fund raiser after Steven Hauck.
“Steven had a deep love for children and was very involved in his nieces and nephews lives,” states Steven’s mother, Donna Hauck. “It is a wonderful way to honor Steven’s service and his love for children.” The Steven Hauck Memorial Fund was established to provide children the opportunity to buy school pictures, pay for sports programs, and participate in other activities. “Through the partnership between the Soroptomist International of Nevada City and DVSAC, we are able to continue to offer resources for building healthy relationships and for healing the effects of violence in children’s lives. We are so thankful for this community group and the work they do.” says, DVSAC Executive Director, Niko Johnson. “After talking with Steven’s family and learning about the positive impact he had on children’s lives, we are honored to be a part of continuing his legacy.” If you would like to make a contribution to the fund or get more information, contact DVSAC at (530) 272-2046.
