Torelli Realty is thrilled to hear about the efforts of Share Our Selves (SOS, shareourselves.org), a nonprofit organization that gave out over 1500 backpacks stocked with school supplies to low-income families in the area. On Saturday, Aug. 29, hundreds of families lined up at the organization’s Westside Costa Mesa location and thousands of children went home prepared for the coming school year. Share Our Selves, you get a gold star!
During a year when a lot of families are struggling to make ends meet financially, Share Our Selves provided a glimmer of hope. In addition to this event they’ve been busy helping low-income families with other financial, medical, and social services too.
Thank you to the 40 or so volunteers who put in their time cramming backpacks full of school items. Not to be overlooked are the local businesses who donated to the cause – such as Hyundai, Hot Topic, Experian, United Healthcare, local churches and others. Due to your generosity Costa Mesa students and others throughout Orange County are starting the school year off right! We’re thankful that Share Our Selves is contributing to the wellness of Costa Mesa and Orange County as a whole.
A+ to Share Our Selves, volunteers, and contributors to the event!
