Back-to-School Blitz

Thank you SCV35 Community



On behalf of the Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District No. 35, we want to THANK YOU for contributing to our drive-thru 2022 Back-to-School Blitz. We sincerely appreciate your efforts in making this another wonderful success!

For those who aren’t familiar with the “Blitz”, this is a Saturday-morning event, held just before the start of the school year at one of our schools. We host a “one-stop” offering of back-to-school supplies for our students. Every item given to students is donated by our local community organizations.

This year, with your support, we were able to serve almost 600 students by
distributing backpacks with school supplies and school uniform shirts.

Our deepest gratitude is extended to all of our volunteers and to the following contributors who attended and distributed donated items at the Blitz:
