Local school receives grant

This past football season, Physicians Realty Trust committed to making a generous contribution of $750 to Ascension St. Vincent's Foundation for every quarterback sack Auburn football's defense made. Funds generated from the 2022 "Sack Obesity" initiative were used to purchase physical education equipment for five Greater Birmingham and five Lee County elementary schools. St. Francis Xavier was selected as one of the recipients, receiving a $2,500 grant to put toward new equipment. The equipment was delivered this month in several shipments, allowing the children to enjoy all of the fun new additions to gym class.
