Background

Mystical Celtic Heart is a family owned and operated brick and mortar, on-line and traveling boutique. We are a metaphysical store that carries Pagan, Wiccan, Spiritual and Holistic supplies for all walks of life. Our family business services the Elk Grove and the greater Sacramento area. Our owners Richard and Jessica Valencia live and have raised their three children in Elk Grove. Their two oldest children went to school and graduated from high schools in Elk Grove. Their youngest son attends Elk Grove High School and plays football and other sports. Richard and Jessica not only own their own business but have devoted a majority of their working careers to the Health and Human Services field, serving their community and bringing awareness of cultural differences and Socio-economic awareness of the low income population. The Mystical Celtic Heart Scholarship Program was created because of their belief in giving back to their community and encouraging students along with their families to pursue and achieve their educational goals. Currently four Scholarship Awards are given to senior high school students and first year students currently enrolled in a Los Rios Community College . These awards are based on different academic paths and requirements and we strongly encourage all students to apply and wish them all the best in their educational endeavors.
