District 9 Students Receive Backpacks Just in Time for Back-to-School

On Aug. 2, Councilmember Curren Price and Northgate Gonzalez Markets joined together to provide 100 kids from South Park Elementary School with new backpacks filled with school supplies. This simple gesture brought bright smiles to the children's faces giving them one less thing to worry about during the most challenging beginnings to a new school year. 

“We have seen the heartbreaking images of the very real disparities that our families are suffering through during the pandemic, from the lack of childcare, going without food and the digital divide; children and families are having to take drastic measures to support their education and we as a community must show up for them,” added Councilmember Price.
