Chamberlain HS Legacy Alliance steps up to the plate for the Baseball Team

The strength of Chamberlain is its alumni. We’re so happy to be supporting all the students at Chamberlain High School. When Terry and Nancy got in touch with me and said ‘What’s your biggest need right now?’ And I told them it was uniforms. We bought practice uniforms for the kids, and the looks on their faces when they got these
uniforms was priceless! I love them! It feels comfortable. It’s great. It’s good-looking. It’s a good feeling knowing that
we’re all coming out looking the same, not looking like we don’t belong. They come from a lot of families with working moms and a lot of
brothers and sisters, and to get some of their parents to shell out a couple
hundred bucks to pay out for uniforms and hats and you know everything else
that they need, just these guys stepping up and helping us with that – it makes
an impact on the boys, makes an impact on their families, makes an impact on the
team, the school. One of the challenges is what are these kids going to eat when they play baseball at an away game? So, Chamberlain has a great Culinary Arts program, so we
asked the chef if he could make box dinners for the kids and he said, ‘Absolutely!’ So, the alumni are paying for the box lunches so that the kids have a great meal for all the away games. Very
grateful for the opportunity to do that. I didn’t know
before this that they were having an issue. I’m really glad to be able to help
out and get these boys something to get them going for they play. So the alumni are trying to help make it better, and it starts with us, because we’re like an
academy program. It’s hard to meet a person where they want to be if their
belly is empty, so putting food in their stomach actually
helps them to concentrate a lot more and give them energy. Plus,
they like being fed. Before the games we’re eating in our locker room and
everyone’s loving the food. They’re saying it’s delicious! Eating right is a
lot of a lot of the process of getting to be a better player, so that’s very
important. We just want them to know that the community supports what they’re
doing. We love them as students. We love what they’re doing. We love what
they represent and who they represent. Thank you to the Legacy group and to the
alumni for just stepping up and helping these boys. That building between
everyone I think it’s going to make not just us, but it’ll make the school itself
even better. Thank you and
we appreciate it. They really love Chamberlain, and they really appreciate
us and what we’re doing here. It feels good, because that’s the kind of things I
want to do when I graduate – just come back and help out. Thank you guys!
