Parents and students lined up early in the morning, Saturday, for kids to get much-needed school supplies for the upcoming school year.
St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Fairfield hosted the annual back-to-school day event, with more than 1,500 families coming to get a free backpack.
“This year we have 1481 backpacks to giveaway,” said Tim Goree, Public Information Officer for Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District.
The backpacks came fully-loaded with paper, pencils, pens, ruler, and calculator.
