At Roscomare we not only have families that give to our wonderful school to cover the costs of our great programs, we also give back to the community. Here’s a glimpse of what we’ve been up to recently.
Hurricane Relief – This year, Roscomare joined forces with Operation Gratitude, and collected and sent important toiletry items to disaster victims and first responders of the terrible hurricanes in the U.S. and Carribean in October 2017.
Candy for Troops & First Responders – Each year after Halloween Roscomare sends candy to Troops and First Responders through Operation Gratitude. In November 2017 – we donated 250 pounds of Candy – way to go Roscomare kids! To learn more about this great organization, click here.
Volunteer League – Volunteer League is currently the only non-profit that provides clothing needs to LAUSD children K-12 and LAUSD Homeless Ed Department middle and high school students. Children are referred to the Volunteer League by school nurses, social workers, principals, and counselors. Friends of Roscomare donates to this organization regularly through our lost and found and other clothing donations from families. Our last donation was December 2017 and our next donation will be in Spring 2018. To learn more about the Volunteer League click here.
Thanksgiving Food Drive – organized by Troop 3696, Roscomare families collect food for the hungry before Thanksgiving – another great job in 2017! Way to go Girl Scouts!
Toy Drive – every year our Student Council organizes a Toy Drive before the winter holidays, bringing new toys to underprivileged children in the community. Click here for the flyer.
Book Drive – the Student Council organized a book drive in 2017 collecting new or gently-used books for needy students in elementary schools.
American Heart Association – their mission is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. All Roscomare students participated in Jump for Heart in 2016, and raised almost $6,000 for The American Heart Association. Well done! To learn more about this great organization, click here
