Back to School is just around the corner and we are collecting school supplies and backpacks to help 150 students in Pacifica get ready for the new school year.
Last year, we helped prepare 152 Pacifica youth for the new school year with backpacks and grade-specific school supplies. This year, we invite you to support our 2018 Back to School Program with a gift of a backpacks and/or school supplies.
To support PRC's Back to School Program, please order from our Amazon Wish List by July 31st with a delivery date by Thursday, August 2nd 2018. If you wish to buy items physically, in-store, then please drop off your contributions no later than 5:30pm on Thursday, August 2nd 2018.
NOTE: As of today*(*7/31), we still need 20 backpacks (preferably the option below in grey or black)
PRC supports the economic security of Pacifica families and individuals by providing a safety net of food, housing assistance, and other critical services, including coaching, advocacy, information, and referral. As part of this work, our Back to School Program helps our families use their limited incomes to stay housed and feed their families, instead of sacrificing groceries and rent money to prepare their children for school. And, when children have food and shelter and can go to school with the supplies they need, they have the tools to succeed academically.
The following is only a portion of the supplies we need. Please visit PRC's AMAZON wish list for our complete list. Thank you!
