A VILLAGE THAT CARES FOR ITS ELDERS
will have elders that care for its children
Earlier this year we put out a call asking for St. Mary’s Academy alumnae and friends to make a donation to Coach King’s Shipping Container Fund. The container would be used to hold supplies for the track and field team, such as hurdles, jump pits, blocks, and more.
Well, folks, I'm pleased to announce that your donations helped us reach our goal! Just a few days ago, the company delivered our container. So, without further ado, here it is, all dressed up in Belles’ Blue!

Isn’t it beautiful?
It now sits on the practice track at the school. So swing by and check it out!
A MILLION THANK YOUS!
Thank you to each and every one of you who donated, shared on social media, told your friends and family and helped us get the word out about our goal. We could not have done this without you and are so very grateful for your continued support.

We all know the saying "It takes a village..."
Well, one of our elders needs our help!
Coach Robert King
Saint Mary's Academy, Inglewood, CA
Coach King — Yes, that Coach King. The man who was either your coach, your kid's coach, or both you and your kid's coach— needs some assistance in continuing his mission of helping our youth reach their academic dreams through athletic means.
Raise $3300.00 to purchase and deliver a SHIPPING CONTAINER
The container will house track equipment — blocks, hurdles, etc— on-site at Saint Mary's so athletes using the facility can have immediate access to what they need during training.
As track season is already underway, it's imperative we reach our fundraising goal quickly!
