Area athletic trainers from Athletico, Downers Grove North and Downers Grove South wanted to give back to the community this month, which is National Athletic Training Month. They teamed up with District 58’s Blessings in a Backpack program to make it happen! Blessings in a Backpack provides low-income students with meals for the weekends.
“Through the efforts of many, including the athletic trainers at both North and South High School, as well as many community members that donated food, we were able to provide all of the students in the District 58 Blessings program with a spring break snack pack,” said Tanya Marquez, Indian Trail PTA co-president and an Athletico athletic trainer.
About 250 spring break snack packs were delivered to District 58 schools this week.
“It was so awesome to see the outpouring of help from the community to support this project,” Marquez said.
Thank you for your support, local athletic trainers and community members!
