Wilmington kids get free backpacks, school supplies during YMCA giveaway – Daily Breeze

The kids may not have received toys or comic books — but what they did get will be much more useful during the upcoming school year.

The YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles hosted a backpack giveaway for K-12 students on Friday afternoon, Aug. 5. The knapsacks, for students whose parents or guardians may not have otherwise been able to afford school supplies, were filled with essentials such as notebooks and writing utensils.

Campuses in the Los Angeles Unified School District, which includes Wilmington, return to school on Monday, Aug. 15.
