Friends of Belding -Lots of Thanks to Report

Lots of “THANKS!” to report

  •  Chicago Fire – The Chicago Fire, through its “Passback” program, donated a large number of soccer uniform jerseys, shorts, and socks (sizes youth small, medium & large), several sets of cleats, & 20 new soccer balls for our soccer program.  Thank you, Chicago Fire!


  • Greencorps Chicago & Belding parent Tina Sevilla – We are now a community garden recognized by Greencorps Chicago.  As such were eligible to receive free bulbs via their bulb distribution day on 10/27.  Thank you to Belding parent, Tina Sevilla, for attending the bulb distribution.  Stay tuned for a call for volunteers to help plant the bulbs.


  • IBM – Belding received $3,000 from an IBM grant to purchase technology.  This grant was obtained from a Belding parent (an IBM employee) based on service hours spent at Belding. **Check to see whether your companies have similar grants!
