San Bernardino City Unified Students Receive Free Covid-19 Tests Courtesy Of Amazon 

Every student attending San Bernardino City Unified schools will receive COVID-19 rapid antigen tests thanks to a generous donation from Amazon. 

A longtime community partner, Amazon donated 150,000 COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to the District’s Making Hope Happen Foundation, which will be distributed to every SBCUSD school. Students will take the tests home in May and can use them to test until early June, when school is out for summer break. 

With the help of partners like Amazon, the Making Hope Happen Foundation (MHHF) engages people, builds partnerships, provides leadership, and delivers resources where they are needed to achieve a thriving and innovative community in which every student is a lifelong learner and can be successful in meeting their hopes and aspirations. 

The Amazon donation included 75 boxes of Abbott BinaxNow rapid antigen test kits, with two tests per kit. Amazon donated these COVID-19 tests to SBCUSD in support of its continued pandemic response to ensure communities across the country have access to reliable at-home COVID-19 testing.

The Foundation supports the educational mission of the San Bernardino City Unified School District, which has embraced the power of hope as a primary driver of personal motivation and community change.

“The Making Hope Happen Foundation and SBCUSD are grateful for partnerships like this one that make these tests readily available for our more than 46,000 students,” said Ginger Ontiveros, the District’s Chief Communications/Community Engagement Officer and MHHF Executive Director. “Even as COVID wanes, it is important that we all do our part to protect ourselves and our community.”

“We’re proud to support the San Bernardino Unified School District by providing COVID-19 rapid antigen tests,” said David Ambroz, senior manager of community engagement for Amazon. “Regular and accessible testing during the pandemic continues to help keep our students and communities safe and healthy as we return to in-person activities.”
