ROSEVILLE, CA (MPG) - Oakmont High School Junior Mallory Mason (17) has always wanted to do something to make a difference in the lives of children. The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut was a reminder of innocence interrupted, and when a teacher challenged Mallory’s class to take a dream and put it into action, Mallory decided to take her love of sports and help children in need.

Armed with flyers to share with her soccer team and friends at school, and to distribute at her parents’ offices, Mallory started a 30-day challenge to collect sports balls for the children seen at the Placer Multi-Disciplinary Center (MDIC), an organization where children are interviewed as victims or witnesses of felony crimes. “I hoped to collect 26 balls in memory of the children and teachers at Sandy Hook and was so excited to deliver 108 balls to MDIC. It was great,” exclaimed Mallory. The delivery included footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, volleyballs, foursquare balls, and even a Frisbee. “Knowing what those kids have to go through when they are ready to talk about tough situations is really hard, but giving them something to keep their mind off it helps.”
