August 6, 2014 (San Diego) – It’s back to school time—and Check Center locations around San Diego County will give away free backpacks and school supplies to the first 250 children who stop by on Saturday, August 9 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This includes an East County location at 1090 East Main Street, Suite 103 in El Cajon.
“We make this event fun for families who participate,” said Melissa Coronel with Check Center. “In the past years we've had great participation with local police fire department and other government agencies to provide more free services to the community even local businesses have lent their support by offering free goods that day! Check Center even holds raffles and serves refreshments as the kids go through the process of getting their free school supplies. Last year Check Center gave out over 1800 backpacks in that one day and this year will be no different we hope to give out over 3200 backpacks to the community.”
