Newbreak donates masks to SRHS

Newbreak Church learned that Scripps Ranch High School (SRHS) was running low on masks at its campus this school year, so its members donated 2,400 masks in early-September. Besides donating masks to the school, Newsbreak recently presented all SRHS teachers and staff with Welcome Back Starbucks cards; and brought RomBomb burgers to teachers and staff as a treat for lunch. Just before the coronavirus shutdown in 2020, Newbreak Church donated a van-full of color paper to SRHS. Newbreak Church is literally a good neighbor to the school, being located just across the street from SRHS at 10635 Scripps Ranch Blvd.
