  • Hello we just moved here and didn’t know about these programs. Is there a place that can still help me. He’s starting K and needs school supplies and shoes and clothes if possible. I don’t know where to tur . Thank you

  • I live in los angeles and must provide 100 kids with backpacks and school supplies-where do I start-i would like to receive donations

  • Not sure the answer – I would go anyways to one of the locations and ask. There is no number to call this morning because they are all office numbers.

  • I believe when I took my kids last year we did not have to show proof. We went to the Hope Street location – we were given one ticket per child, got in line and followed the line so the kids could get something at every station. In addition to books and literature from different service organizations, we received one backpack per child and one plate of food per child. To be safe, I would bring a bus pass or letter from the school if you have it in case they need to see something.

  • do you need to bring your children or proof of how many children you have or is just one free thing per family
    sorry so many questions!

  • hi i just talked to the people from the pawsox and they said no such event was taken place on that day.
    is it going to be in the stadioum or in the parking lot or do you have to buy tickets and go to the game in order to get the school supplies?
    thank you very much
