This is a very unique school year. Even though many kids won’t be going back to “school”, they will be going to school – and for that reason we think it’s as important as ever (maybe more important!) that they have the supplies they need to thrive both academically and emotionally.
As such, we will of course be hosting our Annual Back to School Event. Sadly, we can’t have the big mid-August blowout that we usually do where we meet reps from the schools we’re helping, fill backpacks and then sit down to enjoy dinner together. (Always a blast, as you can see from the photos.)
Instead, we’ll be filling 2000 (!) backpacks in small (10 volunteers), safe, masked, socially-distanced sessions. As always, backpacks will go to underserved kids throughout the LA area.
