People were lined up since 2 a.m. Saturday in Echo Park for a school supply giveaway that featured a guest appearance by Dodgers Pitch Clayton Kershaw. The back-to-school bash is giving away backpacks to kids in need.
There were also free pencils, notebooks, and socks up for grabs for children going back to class soon.
“We have been coming every year because I’m a single mother,” said one woman in line to CBSLA’s Lauren Pozen.
Hosted at the Dream Center, the event was on a first-come-first-serve basis. There was also a water slide for kids in attendance and other games to play during the event.
The Dream Center foundation lends support to those in the community of Los Angeles by offering free resources and services.
