Date: Friday, July 7, 2017
Details: You will be helping Sacred Heart Community Service register thousands of families and 3,300 children to receive backpacks and schools supplies on this one-day event. Families start lining up before the sun comes up and by 8:00 AM the line spans several city blocks. This is where we find out how many backpacks we need for each grade. Shortly after Registration Day we begin ordering supplies. The backpacks are given away on the August 11th Distribution Day.
