Behind them is Brett Woods, Director of the SCC Foundation.

Every year, Pepsi employees forego their annual holiday party and instead give $1,000 to the SCC Foundation.

The money goes into SCC’s Student Emergency Fund, which helps deserving students who encounter unexpected financial emergencies so that they can remain at SCC and continue working toward their degrees, diplomas and/or certificates.
