SHEBA in Action

Back to School/Winter Wonderland Drive

Sheba hosts two annual events for 150-300 youth in need in the Upper Albany area: the Back-to-School Drive in summer and Winter Wonderland in winter. Both fun-filled days provide activities, food, music, and essential supplies. The Back-to-School Drive offers school supplies, while the indoor, holiday-decorated Winter Wonderland provides mid-year supplies like jackets, hats, gloves, and health products to aid students returning after winter break. The events create a festive atmosphere while ensuring academic necessities.
