Teen organizes backpack drive, seeks support – Daily Republic

By Amy Maginnis-Honey

Tamia Wilson, 17, a senior at Rodriguez High School, is organizing her third backpack drive.

A Friday fundraiser will help purchase supplies. Wilson also welcomes donations of supplies and backpacks.

The fundraiser is a bus trip to Santa Cruz that will leave at 9 a.m. from Heritage Park in Suisun City. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales are donated to Wilson’s drive.

Wilson will collect donations beginning at 7:30 a.m., before the bus departs. She works in conjunction with Project What, a nonprofit organization that works to raise awareness about children with incarcerated parents.
