KGET, Bakersfield Homeless Center Backpack Drive begins Monday


It’s nearly time for kids to head back to school and the Bakersfield Homeless Center is going to help some of those kids with getting needed supplies.

Our annual Backpack Drive with the Bakersfield Homeless Center kicks off Monday, July 30.

We’re asking for brand new backpacks and school supplies to give to kids at the center and parents enrolled in the after-care program.

You can drop donations off at our KGET studios at 22nd and L streets in Downtown Bakersfield or at the Bakersfield Homeless Center at 1600 East Truxtun Avenue.

The center will give away the collected supplies on Aug. 11.
