San Diego Community Assist (SDCA), a San Diego-based nonprofit organization, announced that they will be giving out laptops and food boxes to kids and families in need on March 13. This is to help kids, people, and families who are most affected by the pandemic get an education and other basic needs of livelihood.
The organization’s initiative is to raise $25,000 to issue laptops to kids who have been out of school as a result of the pandemic but with no technological facility to access online learning and also to issue food boxes to people and families who lose their jobs and are present with little or no source of income. This program is part of the organization’s commitment to improving the quality of life in San Diego by providing educational as well as social assistance to people in need, especially in these difficult times.

COVID-19 has necessitated school closings throughout San Diego. School systems have turned to distance learning, however, students need access to personal computers in order to learn. Sadly, because many kids in San Diego can’t afford computers their grades are in serious jeopardy.
SDCA is raising funds to distribute computers to underprivileged kids in San Diego on March 13. SDCA is also distributing food boxes to families in need. Each 8-10 pound box can feed a family for the day.
“To ensure that kids and families in need can see hope in these dark times, we at San Diego Community Assist have to come up with this initiative to issue laptops to less privileged kids and food boxes to people and families in need. We hope this program will positively touch the lives of many kids and families as possible, who are not as lucky when it comes to eating a plateful of food or having the technology that we readily have access to,” said Xavier Mitchell, SDCA founder.
SDCA was founded with the sole aim of improving the quality of life and paving the way for a brighter San Diego by providing business, medical, educational, and social services to people in need and also provide opportunities for career building and training.
The organization has in recent months organized a series of social service programs and giveaway packages to help provide food and other basic necessities to workers still unemployed because of the pandemic, lower-income earners, and less privileged people in the community.
The organization will use this program as a means to provide help to those who are counting on help from people who are fortunate to have enough so they can extend a hand of support to them.
