Local children receive backpacks, supplies for school


Some Kern County kids are going to start off the school year right after receiving backpacks and supplies Friday.

Dozens of children at the Boys and Girls Club on Niles Street received backpacks filled with supplies thanks to several organizations like the Bakersfield Rotary Club, Aera Energy’s Black Employee Network, and Bank of America.

The Rotary Club donated 300 backpacks alone for this event, all benefiting children in Kern County.

KGET and the Bakersfield Homeless Center also collected backpacks for local kids and 17 News viewers delivered collecting around 600 backpacks, according to organizers.
