Roscomare Gives Back

At Roscomare we not only have families that give to our wonderful school to cover the costs of our great programs, we also understand the importance of giving back to the greater community.  Here’s a glimpse of a few of the things we’ve been up to:

Candy for Troops & First Responders – Each year after Halloween Roscomare sends candy to Troops and First Responders through Operation Gratitude. We collected and donated candy for Veterans, First Responders and troops in October 2021 – one again, several hundred pounds were donated along with student written letters. Our school donates hundreds of pounds of candy every year – way to go Roscomare kids!  To learn more about this great organization, click here.

Upward Bound House – In October 2021, the 3rd grade organized Socktober – a collection of new socks for Upward Bound House.  An organization whose goal is to “eliminate homelessness among families with children in Los Angeles by providing housing, supportive services, and advocacy.  Over 700 new pairs of socks were collected!.  

Trees for the Future – We buy our yearbooks from,  a company that works with Trees for the Future and plants trees for every yearbook our school purchases. In 2021, over 300 trees were planted in the name of Roscomare Road Elementary!  2020–339 trees were planted, 2019 – 397 trees were planted.

Thanksgiving Food Drive – Roscomare families collect food for the hungry before Thanksgiving every year!  This year, the food was donated to The Hollywood Food Coalition. Their mission is to feed and serve the immediate needs of the hungry every night of the year so they can build better lives.

Toy Drive – every year our Roscomare community organizes a Toy Drive before the winter holidays, bringing new toys to underprivileged children in the community.  Please remember to drop off new unwrapped toys in the office or during drop off/pick up December 13-16th.  Our local Fire Department typically drives their fire truck onto campus and picks them up… our students LOVE that!  Click here for the flyer.

Volunteer League – Volunteer League is currently the only non-profit that provides clothing needs to LAUSD children K-12 and LAUSD Homeless Ed Department middle and high school students. Children are referred to the Volunteer League by school nurses, social workers, principals, and counselors. Friends of Roscomare donates to this organization three times throughout the year through our lost and found.  Our next donation will be December 2021.  To learn more about the Volunteer League click here.

American Heart Association – their mission is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. All Roscomare students participated in the fun obstacle course and jumping exercises involved with the Kids Heart Challenge in June 2019 and raised over $5,000.  In 2016, all student participated in the fun and healthy Jump for Heart program, and raised almost $6,000 for The American Heart Association.
