As the new school year approaches, the City of Garden Grove’s family resource centers invite the community to participate in the Back to School Supplies Drive, a program designed to equip local youth in need with resources to help them succeed at school. Now through Thursday, July 29, the City is accepting donations of backpacks, notebook paper, binders, pencils, calculators and more. Donation collection sites are located at the Recreation Counter in Garden Grove City Hall, at 11222 Acacia Parkway; Buena Clinton Youth and Family Center, at 12661 Sunswept Avenue; and Magnolia Park Family Resource Center, at 11402 Magnolia Street.
Gift cards and monetary donations are also accepted and are tax-deductible. Please make checks payable to the Garden Grove Community Foundation and mail to P.O. Box 3070, Garden Grove, CA 92842.
The City’s family resource centers, comprised of the Buena Clinton Youth and Family Center and Magnolia Park Family Resource Center, provide residents with vital community services that include low or no-cost programs focused on youth enrichment, personal empowerment, parent education, and family support.
Last year, with the help from the community, over 350 local youth received the necessary school supplies needed to support their education.
