TAY Family Drive: Donate Today!

The JLSD Impact Committee will be running a Family Drive in September to support five families of Transition Age Foster Youth who utilize San Diego Youth Services and TAY Academy resources. These families are transition age foster youth who have children and have very few resources available to them.

TAY Academy works with families to provide safe housing options and support services; however, TAY housing options and several homeless shelters separate the families by gender and often times these families have to resort to homelessness in order to remain a family unit.  JLSD plans to help each family by providing them donated items from the lists below.

As an incentive to donate items, members dropping off items at the September General Meeting will receive one raffle ticket. At the end of the meeting, the winning raffle ticket holder will be given a $25 gift card.

JLSD Members/Sustainers can drop off items at the JLSD house during office hours with Sheila or simply put items in the Community Council Room in the JLSD house basement. The items will be stored in the community room in the basement in September and then packaged up at the October General meeting. An impact shift will be scheduled in November to drop off the drive items to SD Youth Services. Please email the Impact Committee for more information or any questions.
