Back to School Fundraiser

Access California Services (AccessCal) annual Back to School fundraiser has helped many children in need with the necessary school supplies. Thanks to our donors, every year, we surprise over 100 children with the tools they need to succeed in school.

This year is different from others! The Covid-19 pandemic has dampened the school spirit. Now more than ever, it is critical we come together to provide the necessary support to children in need. New school supplies will re-invigorate their enthusiasm and ensure they have what they need to focus on overcoming this challenging year.

We ask you to join us to surprise 100 underserved children with school supplies. You can sponsor a child’s school supplies for just $30. All proceeds will go directly towards new purchases.

Our goal is to raise $3,000 by August 31st, 2020. We are sure together we can help enrich the lives of underserved children!
