Hundreds of SCUSD students get free backpacks for school
Elder Creek, John Sloat schools benefit from giveaways
Hundreds of students at John Sloat and Elder Creek elementary schools have received free backpacks since the start of school.
John Sloat students were thrilled to received backpacks filled with school supplies at an event this morning coordinated by Kids in Need. The backpacks were courtesy Papa Murphy’s, which also provided a pizza lunch for students.
Last week, Elder Creek students received free backpacks donated by the offices of Assemblyman Roger Dickinson and Sacramento City Councilman Kevin McCarty.
