Many youth find themselves in a constant state of travel, of moving from place to place, and in need of being able to find a stable position. Some bring their whole lives with them wherever they go, all kept within one pack.

SONiC is committed to helping the Youth Empowerment & Support Services reach their goal of assisting traumatized youth on their journey towards healing and appropriate community integration.

With your help, SONiC wants to help the kids and young adults to “PACK FOR SUCCESS” by giving them a strong, durable backpack with items they need and helping them get on a path to a better future.

Join us on Wednesday, May 22, from 9 to 11 at 5915 Gateway Boulevard and bring your donations to fill backpacks for teens in need.

Bring new underwear (sized small & medium), socks, water bottles, gift cards… we need items that can be carried in a backpack. Plus enjoy delicious coffee, cookies, and donuts courtesy of Freson Brothers!

You can also make a donation to YESS via
