Each year, the staff at CSP-Sacramento (SAC) holds a coat drive to make the winter months brighter and warmer for local students. This year, SAC partnered with the Rancho Cordova Unified School District (FCUSD) to benefit the youth, to honor the memory of fallen Sacramento County Deputy Mark Stasyuk.

Staff could bring in their new or gently used coats to the entrance gate or Community Partnership Office during the month of October.

On Nov. 1, the coats were delivered to FCUSD, who will distribute the coats to students in need this winter.
