Details: On August 9th, 11th, and 12th, 3,400 students in our community will come to Sacred Heart Community Service to choose a new backpack and school supplies. This event needs to be on everyone’s bucket list. For the kids receiving a backpack, it’s like Christmas Day. For the volunteers, it’s a heart warming, sole filling day of joy. Spots are limited and we won’t have enough for everyone, so please only sign up for a shift if you are certain you can attend. Sacred Heart Community Service is counting on our help that day to server thousands of families that will be receiving a backpack.
Location: Sacred Heart Community Service, 1381 S. First Street, San Jose, CA 95110
