Pencils and paper and backpacks! Oh my!
Like a well-oiled machine, members of the Vallejo High School football team worked Monday to fill more than 3,000 black and white backpacks with an activity workbook and a packet of supplies, filling the hallway of Vallejo High School’s Bottari Gym with a few dozen boxes.
“The backpacks will go to every first- and second-grader in the Vallejo City Unified School District,” said Hazel Wilson, a member of the VCUSD Board of Education. “Also, every student at Highland Elementary School will get a backpack.”
Wilson said that this is the eighth year the VCUSD has worked with the CC Sabathia PitCCh In Foundation.
Sabathia is a pitcher with the New York Yankees baseball team and is a graduate of Vallejo High School.
