Pathways LA, a nonprofit providing resources to families with young children, held its third annual Back-to-school Distribution on July 31 in Koreatown. The event was for children ages 3-12 who are enrolled in Pathways LA’s Family Engagement program, which partners with parents and caregivers to promote healthy relationships and child development.
Volunteers distributed 350 backpacks filled with school supplies to help more than 140 families prepare for the upcoming school year. Families also received snack bags filled with healthy treats, and had the opportunity to win prizes including lunch boxes, toys and Kroger gift cards.
“Many of the children we serve receive free and reduced-price meals at school and their families struggle to afford basic necessities like school supplies. Now more than ever, in recovering from a global pandemic, students need help accessing school supplies. Pathways LA plays a critical role in helping our children receive quality care and thrive academically,” Pathways LA CEO Tamika Farr said. “This event supports our mission as we aim to strengthen low-income and vulnerable working families, promote high quality early care and education services for children of all abilities.”
The distribution was hosted at Pathways LA’s parking structure in Koreatown and was held in accordance with Los Angeles County COVID protocols.
Pathways LA is located at 3325 Wilshire Blvd., Ste. 1100. For information, visit pathwaysla.org.
