For the second year in a row, U-Stor-It partnered with One San Diego, Univision San Diego, Mayor Kevin Faulconer, Chief of Police Shelley Zimmerman, and the San Diego Police Department to give away 1,000 backpacks and school supplies to local elementary school students in the Lincoln Park area! The event was held on August 24th, just before the school year began.
Students were able to choose the color of backpack and pencil box they wanted, and had them packed with pencils, crayons, colored pencils, erasers, keychains, and stickers.
Students were excited to start the school year strong with their new backpacks and supplies.
After picking up their supplies, students and families were treated to gourmet bacon-wrapped hot dogs and Hawaiian shaved ice, which everyone couldn’t get enough of.
Overall, the event was a huge success and provided Lincoln Park area kids with the supplies they need to succeed in the coming year. A big thanks to the San Diego Police and Fire Departments, One San Diego, Mayor Kevin Faulconer, Chief of Police Shelley Zimmerman, Univision San Diego, Porter Elementary, KUSI News, CBS 8, NBC 7, and everyone that volunteered and visited the 2nd Annual U-Stor-It Back to School Bash!
