Check Center's Free Back To School Event Offers Backpack, School Supplies to the Community

Posted by: Holly Wesley on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at 9:29:00 am

On July 27th Check Center will be holding our annual Back to School event. We started this event in 2006 and it has grown over the years.

Our major goal is to help provide children with the proper tools needed to have a good school year. Many families struggle with paying for items such as backpacks, school supplies and other back-to-school necessities; this is why Check Center has dedicated one time a year to provide the community free of charge these items.

We make this event fun for the families who participate. In the past years we had great participation with local police, fire department and other government agencies to provide more free services to the community. Even local businesses have lent their support by offering FREE goods that day. Check Center even holds raffles and serves refreshments while the kids go through the process of getting their school supplies.

Last year Check Center gave out over 1,800 backpacks in that one day and this year will be no different, we hope to give out over 3,200 backpacks to the communities near our 17 locations. For every backpack we provide that’s one more parent who has gained a little more peace of mind, the child goes prepared to school and ready to learn.

Once again this is a free event Check Center puts on once a year and we would love for you to be a part of it or help us promote it.

The event time is from the hours of 11:00 am and 2:00 pm at each of our 17 locations in San Diego and the Bay Area.
