    First Gathering of 2021 at The Light Horse on Sept. 16th

    Our first official SCYC Membership gathering of 2021 will be a Happy Hour on Thursday, Sept. 16th at 6 PM at The Light Horse! Ironically, our last gathering was at The Light Horse for the 2020 Alexandria St. Paddy’s Day Parade! This is a membership gathering and a fundraiser. No cover charge, just a raffle. Potential members and friends of the SCYC are also welcome to attend. We have reserved the downstairs bar. We can finally have events again! So join us for a great evening of merriment! Cheers!!

    The SCYC Delivers Gift Cards to Needy Families for the Holiday School Break

    This year has been one of great struggle. It’s been a hard year for everyone, nonprofits included. But the SCYC still found a way to accomplish it’s goal of helping those in need during the Holiday School Break. 

    We usually have a Food Drop in Mid-December where we provide both food and gift cards for local families in need. That, of course, was not possible this year. Instead of providing actual food, the schools asked us for gift cards that they could distribute. 

    I am pleased to announce that both Maury Elementary and Jefferson-Houston Elementary each received $1875.00 in gift cards from the SCYC in time for the Holiday Break. The schools then distributed those gift cards to the families that needed help. 

    We’d like to thank everyone who generously donated to us during Giving Tuesday this year. Your donations are what made these gift cards possible. 

    The SCYC plans to be back in full force as soon as the situation allows. Stay tuned for fun events hopefully starting in late Spring or early Summer. 

    Our mission is to improve the lives of the impoverished and distressed in our community by organizing the caring power of our members and supporters. Our passion is to help anchor our society by reducing the effects of poverty on our youth and helping them reach their fullest potential. We are friends gathering for the less fortunate

    The SCYC is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Tax identification is available on request.
