Support PRC's 2019 Back to School Program!

Back to school time is approaching fast and PRC is collecting backpacks and school supplies to help over 150 Pacifica students get ready for the upcoming school year! Can we count on your support again this year?

Last year with your help, we helped prepare 158 Pacifica youth with backpacks and grade-specific school supplies. This year, we invite you to support our 2019 Back to School Program with a gift of a backpack and/or school supplies.

PRC supports the economic security of Pacifica families and individuals by providing a safety net of groceries, 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.

Thank you again for your support in helping our community's youth go to school prepared and ready to succeed through our Back to School program this year. All contributions to PRC are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law; our tax ID is 81-1496989.
