Given the growing concerns around COVID-19, Back to School Orange County made the difficult decision to postpone the in-person event of Back to School Orange County slated for Saturday, August 1st. Back to School Orange County determined they needed to prioritize the health and safety of their community partners, volunteers, and everyone who helps coordinate and work the event. More importantly, the Board of B2SOC could not determine a safe way to distribute school supplies and services to the children and families under the current social distancing guidelines.
To continue to meet the need in the area, Back to School Orange County Executive Committee decided to proceed with a different plan this year. They will collect and deliver supplies to each of the schools in all 5 districts in Orange County and have them ready to deliver to classrooms. They hope to partner with local churches, businesses, organizations, and individuals to make this happen.
Back to School Orange County will be purchasing school supplies for all Orange County district schools. These supplies will be purchased from and delivered by Orange Stationer. Our students and teachers will safely receive the necessary supplies to begin school.
You can donate by going to PayPal.me/BacktoSchoolOrange, by going to their website or by check. Checks need to be mailed and made out to Orange Christian Services with Back to School Orange County in the memo.
