Santa Maria and local nonprofit One Nation 805 will hold the inaugural Backpack Giveaway, which will provide youth with free backpacks and other school supplies, on Sunday.
The event, which will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Abel Maldonado Community Youth Center, 600 S McClelland St., will provide backpacks and other school supplies to youths from 5 to 18 years old.
One Nation 805 will arrange for barbers and hairstylists to be on-site to provide free haircuts. Music will be played throughout the event by 95.7 The Beat personality DJ Ewrek.
There will also be information booths from the Mayor’s Task Force on Youth Safety and the U.S. armed forces.
One Nation 805 was founded to unite football fans from across the Central Coast. The nonprofit organizes fundraising events and volunteers to help families in need.
