“Lights On Afterschool”: More Than Just an Enrichment Program

The “Lights On Afterschool” program, organized by the Afterschool Alliance, is a nationwide initiative that emphasizes the importance of afterschool programs in children’s lives. While the program typically focuses on educational and recreational activities, it also serves as a platform for community engagement.

A Unique Collaboration in Borrego Springs

In a recent event, San Diego Sheriff’s Rural Deputies took the initiative to join the “Lights On Afterschool” program at Borrego Springs Elementary School. They didn’t just make an appearance; they actively participated by handing out school supplies to the students.

Safety Tips and Community Connections

The deputies used this opportunity to share valuable safety tips with the students and their families. This proactive approach not only educates the community but also strengthens the bond between law enforcement and residents.

Twitter Post Highlights the Impact

A tweet from the San Diego Sheriff’s Department encapsulates the essence of this collaboration: “Making connections while sharing safety tips. Our @SDSheriff Rural Deputies handed out school supplies during the Lights On Afterschool Program for Borrego Springs Elementary School.”
