We also assisted victims of the tragedies of the Las Vegas shooting (October 2017) and the Saugus High School shooting (2019). We are also helping assist those affected by the Coronavirus pandemic with Santa Clarita Grocery to provide food for those in need.
Volunteer Opportunities: We’re looking for individuals and organizations who want to help during a local crisis. We have many volunteer opportunities including mentoring, collecting and distributing needed items to victims, and working behind the scenes to assist in getting victims back to leading a normal life.
