Back-to-School Blitz


Dear Community,

On behalf of the Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District, I want to thank everyone who contributed to our annual “Back to School Blitz.”  We sincerely appreciate your efforts in making this another wonderful success.  

For those who aren’t familiar with the “Blitz,” this is a Saturday-morning event, held just before the start of the school year at one of our schools.  We host a “one-stop” offering of back-to-school supplies and services for our students.  Every item given or service provided to students is donated by our local community organizations.  Due to COVID-19 we hosted the event as a drive thru experience.

We serviced 429 cars during this drive thru event. With your support we were able to serve over 550+ students by distributing school uniform shirts, school supply kits and backpacks.

Major financial contributors to this year’s event were SCV35, Rio Rico Sanitation, Santa Cruz Board Realtor Benevolent Foundation, Rio Rico Property Owners Assoc., Camoa Enterprises Inc., SCC School Superintendent’s Office: Mr. Alfredo Velasquez, Rubin Bros. Produce Corp., Pete Pappas & Sons, Inc., Mrs. Susan Faubion, Ms. Claudia A. Zamora, Mr. & Mrs. Daniel Menefee, Quick Clean Service, Provincial Fruit Co., T.M. Summit, Inc., Power Produce Sales, GEMCO Produce Inc.,
