Starting a new school year is exciting when you know that you have all your gear ready to go in your brand new backpack.
But when you’re financially strapped, the situation can be a strain.
Which is where two local organizations have stepped in.
Burlington Stores Inc. has partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America for a backpack drive.
Through Sept. 5, clients can participate in “#GiveBackPacks: Help Kids Get What They Need to Succeed!”
New or gently used backpacks are being sought and will be distributed to needy local children by the Vacaville branch of the Boys & Girls Club.
