Students from San Pablo’s Bayview Elementary were treated to a clothing item of their choice as part of the annual Back to School Closet event Sat., Oct. 9th hosted by the San Pablo Youth Commission and the White Pony Express, per the City of San Pablo on Facebook.
In all, 50 students in need and their siblings received pre-requested clothing at the drive-up event, while their parents were given a box of household essentials including sanitizer, soap and toothpaste.
Along with the clothing and home essentials, youth commissioners also distributed COVID-19 resource flyers, coloring books donated by Travis Credit Union and brand new books contributed by West County Reads, per City officials.
The San Pablo Youth Commission has helped support San Pablo families in need via the annual Back to School Closet event since 2010, according to the City’s website. Youth commissioners partner with community organizations to hold clothing collections drives throughout the year to support its annual event for students.
