Our 2019 Spring drive is about to begin! Select (here) to jump below for more information on our current drive

Project 680 is a grassroots team effort led by local residents to do something about the problem of student homelessness. Project 680 is all about discovering practical ways to support local students. We are not looking to create enormous and time-consuming programs either, but projects that are easy to pull off and also make sense for everyone. We are continually keeping our eyes and ears open for what local students need and then we do something about it by getting the community involved.

Here is an all-year flyer you can use to get started!

Want to give online? You can go to this link (Cordova Community Council) which will take you to the online giving page for the Cordova Community Council (our parent organization - Federal EIN is 20-8488524) and notate P680 in the comments field and it will get directed to Project 680. Or you mail them a check (please write Project 680 in the memo section) at Cordova Community Council, 2729 Prospect Park Dr, Suite 117, Rancho Cordova, CA 95670.

Current Drive - Spring 2019

Time for our spring drive to collect supplies for our homeless students in the school district. From February 18 through March 29, we will collect some of the most-needed items according to the Liaison for Homeless Services. We invite your household, friends, business, church, or organization to get involved by donating items or dreaming up another way to support the cause. This is a grassroots volunteer effort, so we love to see the imagination and creativity of the community come alive – especially among kids.

We have two versions of the flyer this year; the classic flyer with the grassroots logo and the cartoon kid flyer.

NEEDS: New Hoodie Sweaters - All sizes

You can drop off any donations to the locations listed below. We can also accept checks and cash donations through our non-profit 501c3 sponsor. Checks can be made payable to “Cordova Community Council” with a “Project 680” in the memo. You can go to this link (Cordova Community Council) which will take you to the online giving page for the Cordova Community Council (our parent organization) and notate P680 in the comments field and it will get directed to Project 680.
