A Back-to-School update:
Your generous donations this unusual school year have provided an abundance of learning and health-related supplies. We’ve already made two deliveries. Both schools were overwhelmed by the outpouring of your giving.
This is a huge “THANK YOU” to everyone in the Canyon View family who donated backpacks, school supplies and money for this very different school year. Your generosity allowed our congregation to reach out to three learning facilities. Beside the usual back-to-school items, we were able to provide “on request” supplies that were unique to distance learning and home visits. The staff at each site was overwhelmed by your outpouring of support.
Keep in mind that this is a once-a-year community outreach. Please continue to support the on-going ministries of Blue Bags and Ronald McDonald House which are year-round examples of “caring and action in the community”.
Here is a letter from Eileen Moreno, Ed.D, Principal at Carlson Elementary:
Thank you, your church, and the retirement center for your generous donations and the purchase of the planners. We are so appreciative and gratified for having this partnership with you. We are also very pleased to continue the Blue Bags food distribution.
As you know, this is a challenging time for schools and unfortunately we hear the negative more often than positive so having the support of the community definitely helps to keep things in perspective and makes us happy. Thank you for that!
In addition, we will continue to work with the Jackie Robinson Y and two elementary schools to purchase items that have been identified by school staff as newly necessary during this atypical school year…items like student planners, individual whiteboards, and hygiene items. Normal school supplies continue to be needed. We will gladly shop if you wish to donate through Canyon View by check, cash, or on-line.
