Children were waiting in line at 5 a.m. Saturday to get a free backpack at the Fairfield-Suisun School District Family Resource Fair at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.
The line was wrapped around the building by 10 a.m.
“We couldn’t believe that they came that early,” said Elizabeth Teresi, assistant director of Student Services for the school district.
The event gave parents a chance to get a free backpack filled with school supplies and to learn about programs offered in Solano County to benefit low-income families.
