Backpacks and School Supplies Drive

Did You Know?

In our San Juan Unified School District there are close to 1,200 school age children who are in some type of housing transition. Individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence are living in transition. These kids are living in a shelter, motel or hotel, transitional housing, trailer park, campground, makeshift arrangements in someone's home or a place not designed for human accommodations. These kids need our help today!

Our Backpack drive was a huge success

The last week of August we delivered nearly 300 fully supplied backpacks to the San Juan Unified School District McKinney-Vento Office who will distribute them to kids living in transition.

Thank YOU to all of our volunteers and donors. We could not have accomplished this without your support.
