Eastern Sierra Back to School Backpack Project 2016
Organized by: Susanne Rizo
EVENT DATE Aug 05, 2016
August 2016 marks the fourth annual Back to School Backpack Giveaway project run by the Eastern Sierra Department of Child Support. This program targets cases managed by the agency with school-aged children. “We know that child support payments positively impact a child’s personal and educational success,” said Director, Susanne Rizo. As a new school year approaches, families need money to purchase clothing, school supplies, and more. “One thing we see families struggle with is the cost of back to school items for their children. With generous donations from community members and service groups we are able to provide many of the school supplies needed for a successful education for the children in our community."
