Student backpacks and school supplies giveaway
August 5 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
For the sixth year, St. Bernard parishioner Maggie Darett-Quiroz will be giving out student backpacks with school supplies, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Glassell Park Community Garden, at 3304 Drew St.
Backpacks will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
“I have collected 431 backpacks from friends and neighbors,” Darett-Quiroz said. “That would help a lot of our community kids and their families from having to buy school supplies. I am so grateful to all the support I’ve been getting, although my house is starting to look like a warehouse.”
