Olsen & Fielding is a highly-regarded Sacramento moving company, known for quality customer service stemming from a genuine care for its customers. The community-oriented nature expressed at Olsen & Fielding is further demonstrated through their community involvement.
Giving back to those in need is one of the most rewarding experiences we’ve had here at Olsen & Fielding. Since 2015, we’ve had the privilege of working with local organization, The Playmakers. Together we’ve helped children who experience academic and personal challenges build self-esteem, increase reading levels, improve physical fitness, and gain a sense of community through volunteer work.
Who Are the Playmakers?
The Playmakers is an after-school leadership mentoring and reading program for at risk youth.
THE PLAYMAKER DIFFERENCE: The right coach/teacher, the right equipment, the right incentives = better performance
The Playmakers was founded in 2009 by former NFL player, Greg Roezler. As a high school varsity football coach, “Coach Roz” was troubled to discover that the majority of his players faced daily struggles in their personal and academic lives, including local gangs, crime, drugs, and more. He founded The Playmakers to support struggling youth by helping them build character through sports and academics.
Curt Olsen of Olsen & Fielding is honored to further this important endeavor by joining the Board of Directors of The Playmakers, and he fondly recalls what fueled his desire to support the organization:
“The day that Curt Olsen came to our campus and saw kids sitting on the floor learning to read was all it took. Playmakers had just researched a cloud based reading program that required software and chrome books but did not have the financial resources to launch the beta test. Our goal was to improve kids reading grade levels (in a volunteer program) during the summer.”
When Mr. Olsen saw the mission of The Playmakers and their need of resources, he was inspired to reach out and help them meet their goals. Since, The Playmakers has managed a successful afterschool and summer reading program that’s helped thousands of children gain necessary skills to achieve greatness—academically and beyond.
