NorCal Chapters 2018 – 2019

Through the years of 2018 and 2019, the volunteers of Student Corps’ NorCal chapters participated in a variety of events and long term goals to help families in need and spread awareness on different causes. With our partnership with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Bay Area (BBBS), the students collectively raised 500 dollars to donate in the form of a scholarship to a child in need. This included a year long bottle recycling program that contributed to the majority of the money raised. Additionally, in both the years of 2018 and 2019, the students of our NorCal chapters joined BBBS in their annual Bowl for Kids Sake event to help celebrate the year long fundraiser. Alongside this partnership, many more individual events were held. Our students joined the 2nd Harvest Food Bank in helping sort food for people in need, helped the Stanford Asian Liver Center to spread awareness on HBV, and many more events that heavily benefitted the community in a vast variety of ways.

Recycling Halfway through 2019!

The California Chapters of Student Corps have been hard at work recycling their bottles! All funds will benefit our annual donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County. Here are some pictures below of the various students of all ages recycling! Thank you everyone for volunteering their time to help further education and support sustainability efforts!

Note: As of August 2019, all rePlanet locations in California have been shut down. Please refer to your local recycling centers to recycle your bottles. You may presort 50 bottles of each type of material, which are plastic, glass, and aluminum, per person present at each recycling center. (1 person: 150 bottles maximum; 2 persons: 300 bottles maximum; etc.) The rest of the bottles will most likely be weighed.
