UCSC student organizations are now part of the School Assistance Program (SAP). When shoppers tell the cashier at a participating store to give credit to SAP 90, a rebate will be given to the SOAR office to support student organizations. This month, local Longs Drug Stores will double the SAP rebate. Other SAP stores include: Shopper's Corner, Palace Arts, Poor Richards, New Leaf, Zanotto's, Round Table, The Buttery, India Joze, and Zoccoli's. For more information, go to the SOAR Web site: http://soar.ucsc.edu/SOAR/SAP.html.
