LOS ANGELES -- The UCLA Bruins, in conjunction with the NCAA’s community service efforts that surround the Women’s Basketball Championship, is accepting nominations for the Volunteer of the Year in Southern California.

The NCAA Volunteer of the Year will be announced on February 28.  Nominations for Volunteer of the Year will be accepted until Feb. 25. If you or a person you know has gone above and beyond in giving back to the community, nominate them for Volunteer of the Year by clicking here. These volunteers will be selected based on contributions to their community and the example they set for others, which is what Women's Basketball Programs around the country are trying to do each day.

The Women’s Basketball community is dedicated to community service efforts and is proud to recognize others that do the same throughout the country.  At the Women’s Final Four in Nashville, Tennessee the participating teams will endeavor in many community service efforts including reading programs, hospital visits, supporting the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and more. 

The UCLA Women’s Basketball program has dedicated itself to community service and endeavors in many different community events throughout the year.

Some of the endeavors include Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA, Dribble for the Cure, a senior citizens home in Culver City and the Dream Center in Los Angeles. Additionally, during Christmastime, the UCLA women’s basketball team adopts a family in need and ensures they have a joyous holiday season. The Bruins have also engineered a shoe drive, partnering with Samaritan’s Feet, the past three seasons. All of these different avenues give the UCLA women a chance to experience new ways to help others and their community.

This past summer the team spent time working with autistic children and their parents, handing out over 1,000 backpacks at a local “Back to School Drive,” and mentoring young students in the community. They volunteered at the HollyRod Foundation’s 4th Annual “My Brother Charlie” Family Fun Festival in early August. They also worked Ryan Hollins' basketball camp "Get Buckets" and volunteered at the Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA Teen Adventure Program.

The NCAA is honoring one person in each of the 20 communities that are hosting the 2014 Women’s Basketball Championship.  UCLA will host the 1st and 2nd rounds of the 2014 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament on March 22 and 24 in Pauley Pavilion. The Southern Californian Volunteer of the Year will be recognized at one of the NCAA Tournament games in Pauley Pavilion.  In addition their story will be told throughout the Women's Final Four in Nashville.
