ISSUE 6-2017 SESSION 2 WEEK 2 JULY 15, 2017

This year we are reaching out and will be donating


to 3 non-profit organizations that will help many
families in need. 1st Session did a great job and all
3 organizations expressed how grateful they are
for our donations. Lets continue with 2nd Session!
1. Family Promise of Santa Clarita Valley assists
homeless families with children by offering shelter,
meals, and support services. This program
requires background checks for children's safety
and provides support for life long sustainability.
They are in need of shampoo, conditioner, soap, toilet paper and deodorant.
2. San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission assists families with children by establishing a plan for
restoration and self sufficiency. This organization offers life skills programs and training onsite. Not
only does the SFV Rescue Mission feed and house homeless families but they also plan field trips
and special events! This mission is in need of toys and nonperishable foods.
3. Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry's mission is to "alleviate hunger throughout the Santa Clarita
Valley." This food pantry has been serving the community for over 30 years. I feel this organization
will be greatly advantageous from our donation. They are specifically in need of canned fruit and
other canned food items.
Please Bring Items starting this week. We have boxes in the office.
We will be making trips each week to donate the items.

JG Regionals:

MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR:


We have finally received our order of more Rashguards. We have a
limited number that we will start selling at 8:30am on MONDAY
Morning from the back door of the JG Classroom (BISC-same location
where we had uniform handouts) We will not give out any rash guards
until 8:30. Please make sure to get the right size so you will need to
have your JG with you to try-on. You may also park in LOT #1 is you
plan to get a rash guard on this morning.
