Backpacks and School Supplies Giveaway at Super Saturday Event | News

Child Support Services is holding a Super Saturday event from 9am. to 6 p.m., August 13 to give away hundreds of backpacks filled with school supplies to all children in attendance, while supplies last. The event will take place at the headquarters of the Department of Child Support Services, at 3666 Kearny Villa Rd.

August is Child Support Awareness month and Child Support Services wants to celebrate by helping children in the community. The goal of the gift is to ease the financial costs associated with going back to school and boost the child’s confidence and self-esteem to successfully enter the school year. Child Support Services recognizes that local families may still be dealing with the financial impact of not only the pandemic, but also the rising costs associated with basic living expenses.

For the special Super Saturday event, services are also provided for San Diego parents. Many county partners will be at the event:

  • Live Well on Wheels mobile bus to help with aid eligibility
  • Office of Emergency Services to provide disaster preparedness information
  • Prefectural Department of Human Resources to offer job opportunities
  • Animal Services to help families adopt a pet (waived adoption fees in August)
  • Public Defender’s Fresh Start Program to assist with criminal record expungement

Child Support Services will also be available to share details about programs such as High School Diploma Support, Parents Investing in Education and Youth with Dreams.

Child Support Services thanks all county agencies participating in this year’s Super Saturday and the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department for its donations.
