Thank You

BSS would like to extend a public thanks to The Riverside Families & Children’s Commission, The County of Riverside and Inland Empire Health Plan. Over the past few weeks, and through the generosity of these entities, we were able to distribute over 6,000 masks, over 200 diapers, dozens of gallons of bleach, fresh vegetables, and 200 gallons of milk.

Such a display of generosity has enabled our organization to provide these items to our consumers, their families and persons who can truly benefit during these tough and challenging times.
