Employer Donation Matching

Many employers match donations to 501(c)(3), non-profit organizations like SCGSR!  Sempra, AT&T, and many other companies both large and small will match their employees' donations to non-profits.  Check with your company to see if they match: Help even more!

Save Lives by Recycling

Recycle Your Old Cell Phone

All used cell phones are accepted.

Recycle Inkjet Cartridges and Small Electronic Devices
