For yet another year, the CSR Outreach Food Program held in February 2024 at Covina HS was a huge success!  Sunrise Club members alongside Covina HS Interact & Key Club, Las Palmas MS Interact, and students from Northview HS and Charter Oak HS plus a handful of Boy Scouts packaged 15,000 nutrition packed meals of Rice & Beans in just under 2 hours.  Recipients of the meal packs are food banks: Project 29:11, Sacred Heart Church, Elim Community Food Pantry & Shepherd's Pantry.

This was such a great event, not only providing nutritious, protein packed meals to combat food insecurity, but working alongside the students and strengthening our community service bonds. We also appreciate the financial assistance from the Champion Foundation. A huge thank you to Bill Higley for putting this together again and to all that showed up to help!

Free Reading Program for Kids!

 

We are a proud sponsor of a new, online FREE Reading program for kids in K-6. The program is compatible with most Internet browsers used by desktop and tablet computers. Anyone can easily sign up for the program free through our website. Just click on the logo above to get to the login page for the program.

The goal is to enhance the literacy skills of English language learners of all grade school ages. The FREE reading program will help improve English reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary and much more! Currently there are over 110,000 kids enrolled! If you have or know children of grade school age, check out the program - we believe it can really help improve literacy in our youth.

Operation Santa Clothes

Our flagship Operation Santa Clothes program has clothed over 35,000 kids with new clothes! We have also been able to provide over $50,000 in scholarships in seven high schools. OSC began in 1994 serving 73 children from one Covina school. The project focuses not only on provided clothing, but giving self esteem, character development, and a sense of caring to these kids. You can help with a tax deductible donation here. See our Santa Clothes page to make a donation or for more information.
