Annual Backpack Giveaway Event

Dear Neighbors, 

I am excited to host our 9th annual Backpack Giveaway event on Saturday, August 13, 2022 from 10am-1pm at the Lemon Grove Recreation Center located at 3131 School Lane, Lemon Grove, CA 91945. 

We will have over 1,000 backpacks for students of all ages filled with school supplies thanks to our generous partners and sponsors.* Additionally, there will be resource tables with tons of good information for families and even a bicycle helmet giveaway! 

This year, we are also partnering with San Diego Protecting Against HPV and Champions for Health to provide free HPV and COVID-19 vaccines. Register now to let us know you're coming and which vaccine you would like. To learn more about HPV, we held an informative webinar that can be viewed on our website. Please watch and share with your networks! The video recording can be found here: HPV Awareness Webinar
