Drive for Schools

Thank you to everyone who participated in Drive for Schools this year. With your help, we raised over $23,000 for Soquel High School!

Drive for Schools is an amazing fundraising opportunity, sponsored by Toyota of Santa Cruz, that allows each school to keep every dollar earned from ticket sales each Fall! Check the DFS website each September for more information on how you can help our school through your participation.
