HYC's 2nd Backpack and School Supplies Giveaway will be held on Tuesday, August 24, from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Liberty Community Plaza in Unincorporated South Whittier. Thanks to our incredible partnerships with PIH Health, Kaiser Permanente, Water Replenishment District, CB Cares, Baby2Baby, Girl Scout Troops, and community individuals, we received an overwhelming response of backpack and school supply donations! Families must register in advance by completing our online form at the link below. Backpack distribution is on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last. Our first event was held on August 7, and we distributed 249 backpacks to children and teens from the surrounding communities!
We are excited to announce that we are also partnering with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to offer COVID-19 vaccines to individuals (ages 12 and over) during the Backpack Giveaway. No registration for vaccines is necessary and will be available to anyone in the community. Vaccines will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last.
