Marina High School Scholar Resource Center

Marina High School Scholar Resource Center

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Marina High School saw a sudden spike in the number of scholars whose families faced homelessness. During that time homeless families more than doubled across all Marina city schools. What started with a few dozen families swelled to hundreds of families in need.

This crisis spurred the effort to create the Marina High School Scholar Resource Center at the end of May of 2020. The center was the result of the collaborative efforts of Marina High School, Monterey Peninsula Unified School District (MPUSD), and The Marina Foundation. It gives students and their families access to groceries, toiletries, and school supplies as well as a place to do laundry, take a hot shower, and focus on homework on a by appointment basis.

The Marina Foundation received the initial matching grant of up to $20,000.00 from The Jack and Beverly Russell Family. The Marina Foundation also received a matching grant contribution of $10,000.00 from the Sierra Club, Ventana Chapter. 

Funds from these grants, and matching funds, are being used to continue to expand and restock the Scholar Resource Center at Marina High School for the benefit of scholars and their families facing hardship and homelessness.

If you would like to help, you can donate below or you can send a check to: The Marina Foundation, P.O. Box 324, Marina, CA 93933, listing "Marina High School Scholar Resource Center" on the memo line.

We thank you for your support.
