The Second Chance building located at 6145 Imperial Avenue was the location for this year’s back to school backpack giveaway sponsored by Assemblymember Dr. Shirley Weber last Saturday. Because of the Coronavirus, this year’s event was a drive thru with students required to be in cars with parents or families providing rides. In addition to the backpack and school supplies, families were also given bags of fresh fruits and vegetables by a host of volunteers who came out to make the event a success. The line of cars stretched back past the Black Contractors Association ( BCA) and up the hill to Bayview Baptist Church. It didn’t take the designated two hours to get the supplies to everyone.

Past annual events at locations like Lincoln and O’Farrell were almost full day activities with a host of agencies and organizations participating. Unfortunately, due to the virus, that approach was not available this year, but the event was still a success.
