We encourage students, parents, staff, and alumni to participate in the Backpack & School Supplies Drive! 

Let’s come together to serve our community! The collected items will be distributed to at-risk and homeless youth at Mustard Seed School and other Sacramento non-profit partners.

This drive is hosted by the Office of Service & Justice and in partnership with the Sacramento chapter of Jesuit West CORE
