The Annual Back to School/Stay in School Backpack Rally, hosted by the North San Diego County NAACP will be held this Saturday, August 6th, 2016 at MiraCosta College, and they're looking for volunteers!
Volunteers should arrive at 9:00 AM for a brief training and to help with set-up. The rally will take place from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, and is open to the community. Most volunteers should be able to leave by 12:30 PM.
"We envision every school-aged child having the best learning opportunities possible, beginning with the tools they need to succeed in the classroom. With that in mind, for the last nine years, we have provided approximately over 3,500 backpacks, filled with school supplies to students K-12 at a fun-filled rally with games, entertainment, and food. We hope to serve every student who attends, but we depend on financial or in-kind donations from businesses and organizations to ensure that we meet that goal and continue those efforts."
If you would like to make a donation (see list below) to the NAACP for this event, please contact the Chairperson, Linda Kabrel at (760) 406-3818 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
