About 5,000 backpacks will be given away at a huge event in San Bernardino on Saturday, July 31.
The drive-through event, which is supported by several organizations, will be for students who are pre-K through grade 12 and will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the San Bernardino County Government Center, 385 N. Arrowhead Avenue.
Also at the free event, organizers will be giving away free farm-to-family food boxes, face masks, socks, books, and more, said 5th District Supervisor Joe Baca.
"With COVID-19 still prevalent in our community, we will also be offering vaccinations for those who are 12 years and older. Those who are under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian present to receive the vaccination," Baca said.
