BENEFITING: FLINTRIDGE CENTER

EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2016

THE STORY:

Students in the SKILLZ Summer School program need brand new backpacks full of school supplies. The program serves 100 young people in the Pasadena Unified School District who are at risk of dropping out of school and come from families affected by poverty. SKILLZ gives these youth a chance to strengthen important life skills and academic skills over the summer. It’s more than just a summer school - it's a space for youth dealing with issues of poverty and community violence to feel safe and cared for.

We need these backpacks and school supplies by June 1st! Please help us support these youth so they can make the most of their summers and go into the school year confident that they have the tools they need to succeed. Any amount will help!

$5 buys a spiral notebook

$10 buys a calculator

$20 buys packs of pencils for ten students

$40 buys a backpack

$75 sponsors one backpack filled with all the school supplies a student will need for the program

We also accept donations via snail mail! Please make checks out to Flintridge Center and mail to: 236 West Mountain St., Suite 106, Pasadena CA 91103.

SKILLZ is a collaboration between Flintridge Center, Day One, Lake Avenue Community Foundation, Lake Avenue Church, College Access Plan, Pasadena Unified School District, the Pasadena Police Department, and other youth-serving partners.
