Sunnyvale Community Services is Gearing Up!

With summer here, the new school year is just around the corner. At Sunnyvale Community Services, we are literally gearing up for the Summer Drive for School Supplies and Backpacks!

Donations Needed

Sunnyvale Community Services (SCS) is requesting donations of brand new backpacks and school supplies for their Backpacks Program to benefit low-income school-aged children. This program is meant to help children start off school with all the needed school supplies to ensure a successful academic year.

Join Us in Supporting a Great Organization

SCS is an independent, nonprofit emergency assistance agency that works to prevent homelessness and hunger for low-income families and seniors facing temporary crises. The agency provides financial aid, food, and other support that prevents larger problems with more expensive solutions.

To Partipate

You can bring in school supplies or backpacks, for students from kindergarten through high school, and we will see that they get to Sunnyvale Community Services.

OR check out the SCS website: www.roonga.com/SCSBackpacksDrive

Special Note: We respectfully ask that you select alternative colors for backpack donations – No “Red” or “Blue” colored backpacks please.
Thank you for your support!
