SAN JOSE (KRON) — Hundreds of San Jose Families are getting a free backpack and school supplies just in time for the new school year.
Parents lined up bright and early to get backpacks for their children after registering a few weeks ago at Sacred Heart Community Service center.
An event organizer says the backpacks are filled with supplies such as markers, calculators and rulers, and each bag contains about $75 dollars in supplies. A huge help for families in need.
