Catholic Schools week Gift Distribution
Here we are in action at Nativity School distributing over 400 gifts and joy to every student TK-8th grade. A huge thank you and shout out to Notre Dame High School Mothers Guild who since 2016 have purchased and wrapped gifts to make the holidays brighter for the kids at Nativity! Blessed are we to have such a wonderful partner. ❤
Sports Equipment Distribution
Although SSSP was heartbroken to have to postpone our spring events, we were able to distribute over 1,000 pieces of equipment including balls, jump ropes and games to the students we serve. We partnered with the LA84 Foundation, Archdiocese of Los Angeles and SCORE Sports to make this possible so that our students have some equipment to play with over the summer.
PE in a BOX
That’s what we call our partnership with Fit Kids, a ground breaking non-profit that provides a structured physical education curriculum to children in underserved schools. Teachers get online lesson plans and sports equipment in a box; kids get to have fun. This year, 14 SSSP schools are enrolled.
Ballet Pacifica STEM Program
We are thrilled to partner with Ballet Pacifica’s outreach program that teaches STEM subjects to 2nd graders through ballet and classical music. This year, 32 SSSP schools enjoyed the docent-led four lesson program that culminated in a field trip to see a performance of The Nutcracker.

Sketchers at American Martyrs
The Saint Sebastian Sports Project would like to thank Skechers for generously donating hundreds of backpacks, clothing, shoes, socks and other new items for the schools that we serve. Our 46 schools were able to “shop” at American Martyrs O”Donnell Hall on 3/14 – you can see the smiles on the students with their new gear!
Loyola Marymount University College Visit Day
This year we hosted 150 students for a fun filled campus tour and lunch, followed by the woman’s volleyball team win and opportunity to meet the players.
3rd annual Soccer Camp with Evolution Soccer at St. Frances X Cabrinni
The kids had a blast and improved so much during the week!
