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. So far, in 2016/17, we’ve supported:
American Heart Association – their mission is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. All Roscomare students participated in Jump for Heart – and raised almost $6,000 for The American Heart Association. Well done! To learn more about this great organization, click here
SOVA – last year SOVA distributed over 2.5 million pounds of healthy, nutritious food to individuals of all ages, ethnicities and religions. Nearly 9,000 people benefit from this each month. Roscomare donated 2,347 pounds of food to support SOVA’s hunger relief program. Click here for the thank you letter. To learn more about SOVA, click here.
Operation Gratitude – Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages filled with food, entertainment, hygiene, and handmade items, plus personal letters of appreciation to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home. In coordination with long-time Roscomare supporter Dr. To, Roscomare turned in 456 pounds of candy and many wonderful letters of appreciation of our troops. Way to go!

Thanksgiving Food Drive – organized by Troop 3696, Roscomare families collected food for the hungry before Thanksgiving.
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 will be donating to this organization regularly through our lost and found and other clothing donations from families. To learn more about the Volunteer League click here.
