Spring drive has begun! (information)

Project 680 is a grassroots team effort led by local residents to do something about the problem of student homelessness. Project 680 is all about discovering practical ways to support local students. We are not looking to create enormous and time-consuming programs either, but emphases that are easy to pull off and also make sense for everyone. We are continually keeping our eyes and ears open for what local students need and then we do something about it by getting the community involved.

What are our current needs?

* Hoodies – Adult Medium/Large, Children Medium/Large

* Socks

* Personal Hygiene products. Please note that it is very difficult for the school district to store and distribute personal/travel size (they fall between the wire racks on the storage shelves), so we no longer forward these sizes to them.

Here is an all-year flyer you can use to get started!

Want to give online? You can go to this link (Cordova Community Council) which will take you to the online giving page for the Cordova Community Council (our parent organization - Federal EIN is 20-8488524) and notate P680 in the comments field and it will get directed to Project 680. Or you mail them a check (please write Project 680 in the memo section) at Cordova Community Council, 2729 Prospect Park Dr, Suite 117, Rancho Cordova, CA 95670.

Next Drive - Spring 2017 Drive (final collection date is April 7)

Current Drive - Spring 2017

Time for our spring drive to collect supplies for our homeless students in the school district. From March 6 through April 7, we’ll collect some of the most-needed items according to the Liaison for Homeless Services. We invite your household, friends, business, church, or organization to get involved by donating items or dreaming up another way to support the cause. This is a grassroots volunteer effort, so we love to see the imagination and creativity of the community come alive – especially among kids.
