The Center for Service in Action (CSA) invites all students, staff, faculty, alumni and supporters to contribute to the Mustang Holiday Gift Card Drive! This year, our goal of $5,000 will help support 200 local children in need. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended the traditional giving-tree tags and shopping aspects of the drive, so charitable contributions are even more critical to our success of this year’s drive. Every gift through this campaign funds the purchase of gift cards for children in need, served by our community partner agencies, this holiday season. While the gifts are usually priced in the $20-30 range, any amount of donation (no matter how small) can help as it will go towards funding a specific child’s gift request. Please contribute by Friday, December 4 to help make a child smile this holiday season!
This year we will be supporting the following organizations:
Child Welfare Services
Housing Authority of SLO (HASLO)
Migrant Education Program
