Buy a raffle ticket to help save the school program!

We are reaching out with a special request for a donation and/or to purchase tickets for our raffle.   For the past 35 years, Suicide Prevention of Yolo County has been providing a school-based education and prevention program – “SOS-Signs of Suicide®”, but due to funding reductions we are in serious jeopardy of having to cut-back on this important life-saving program.

Students who receive the “SOS-Signs of Suicide®” program learn about the warning signs of suicide, and how to seek help for themselves or for others.  Our program also incorporates the difficult emotional times that teens experience due to bullying, social difficulties, peer and academic pressures, and changes in the home environment.

We must find ways to help and protect our youth. As we can no longer support this program on our own, we are reaching out to the community for financial support.

We hope that you will help up us though your donation so we can continue to present this life-saving information to the children of our community.  Local businesses have generously responded by donating items for our raffle basket valued at over $500 (including gift cards, products, and admission tickets).

All of the money raised will be used to replace the classroom presentations that we will otherwise be unable to support in this upcoming school year.

The winner will be drawn the week of Thanksgiving, so you still have time to buy a ticket (or 5)! Go to the Donate link to buy tickets online (just note in the Notes section how many raffle tickets you’d like) or send a check to:
