The Back to School event is being held on Saturday, August 26 at Ridgecrest Elementary and The WORKS is in need of volunteers to help with event preparation in the days leading up to the event and on the day of the event.  This is a wonderful community effort that last year provided over 1,000 backpacks to Shoreline students along with new underwear, socks, and hygiene kits.

Please consider signing up for one of these opportunities and help support our Shoreline community:
