Scholarships 2018:

We Give Thanks is proud to announce that we will be offering scholarships again this year
for students in the Orange County School District. This will be the seventh year of our giving out funds to qualified students who apply on our website.

When founder Frank Garcia started feeding the needy in his La Casa Garcia Restaurant parking lot, over 31 years ago, he always felt a need to do more. Helping needy students with their education was something Mr. Garcia had a burning desire to do.

Since We Give Thanks started this program, we have given out over $40,000 to Orange County’s finest students. Previous honorees’ have had a very high GPA, and been involved in many school organizations, along with giving back to the community. Past winners are making a difference in this world, on a daily basis, and we are so proud to be able to help them in their future endeavors.

Deadline for signing up is May 1, 2018.

The application is posted here.
