About the School Supplies Donation Drive
Now through August 2nd, Yolo County Children’s Alliance is hosting a Back to School Backpack and School Supply Donation Drive! We are raising funds to purchase 700 backpacks filled with school supplies as well as provide other supports in the form of hygiene kits and bikes.
We plan to serve 700 West Sacramento students – in order to serve as many children as possible, we are seeking donations to purchase backpacks and supplies in bulk. Can you help? Your $15 donation will provide a student with a backpack filled with everything they will need to start the school year!

About the Back to School Resource Fair
As you may know, many families and individuals in our community go without proper food, shelter, and essential medical care every day due to a variety of factors including low wages, job loss, injuries, illness, age, or domestic violence. While all of us are susceptible to hard times, children are the most at risk, and they make up the largest number of the clients we serve.
On Saturday August 11th, 2018, we are hosting a Back to School Health Fair where we plan to distribute backpacks filled with school supplies as well as other supports in the form of hygiene kits and bikes to school-aged children. The event will take place at our Family Resource Center in West Sacramento near Riverbank Elementary School in West Sacramento. The Family Resource Center is a place where families with young children can go to receive bilingual assistance with essential services such as free or low-cost health insurance, assistance with CalFresh, Woman, Infants & Children (WIC) program, as well as food and clothing distribution once a week among many others services.
