20th Annual Back to School Program

August, 2015

Join us as we celebrate 20 years of providing backpacks and school supplies to Orange County children!

In 1995, SOS began distributing clothing and school supplies to children in the community. In the years since, the program has grown by leaps and bounds, and in 2014, SOS distributed over 3,700 backpacks filled with school supplies to children from all over Orange County.

SOS recognizes that to a child a new backpack brings confidence and provides them with the right tools for success in school.

The happy faces of children receiving backpacks from SOS speak for themselves. You, too, can help SOS empower children to be the leaders of the future! Every gift makes a difference in the life of a child. Let’s make this our best year ever!
