SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills is continuing his efforts to help the Indigenous Australian community.

Mills has announced he is launching the 'Keriba Ged' program. It is a team up with coffee brand Bluestone Lane and aims to improve the social and economic conditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia.

“I am looking forward to working with the Bluestone Lane team in developing their innovative Keriba Ged program that will create real opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples," Mills said.
"Bluestone Lane forms part of my daily ritual and is my taste of home whilst I live and play basketball half a world away. It’s these memories and small reminders of home that play a big part of my success, connect me to my people and where I come from, and drive me to achieve greatness.”

Mills' global community impact is incredible.

From bringing in clean water for Australia, donating the remainder of his salary from last year to social awareness initiatives, organizing a coffee drive for mothers in San Antonio and much more.

He also is a face in the San Antonio community attending local events, and always willing to snap photos with fans.

“What we do together will create a model that builds confidence and experience for a lifetime, equipping the successful applicants with valuable life and business skills, setting them up with the tools to flourish and succeed, which can then be replicated and applied across other global businesses worldwide and in their communities back home,” he added.
