Rio Rico School Blitz 2017

The Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District is grateful to all those individuals and organizations who contributed to their annual “Back to School Blitz.”  The “Blitz,” is a Saturday-morning event, held just before the start of the school year at one of the schools.  The Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District hosts a “one-stop” back-to-school supplies and services for their students.  Every item given or service provided to students is donated by our local community organizations.

With the support of local organizations, the school district is able to serve over 800 students by distributing school uniform shirts, school supply kits, student immunizations, sports physical and visits the dental services. “We sincerely appreciate your efforts in making this another wonderful success,” said Lizzie Menefee coordinator of the event.

Major financial contributors to this year’s event were Rio Rico Sanitation, Las Trankas Mexican Restaurant, Desert Diamond Casino and Entertainment, Santa Cruz Board of Realtors, Safeway Foundation, Nickel’s Diner, Calixtro Distributors, Residents of Rio Rico, Friends of SCVUD #35 Foundation, Camoa Enterprises Inc., and Mr. & Mrs. Daniel Menefee.
