San Diego Police and officials helped pass out new back-to-school gear to homeless students who may otherwise not be able to supply them on their own.
SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The city of San Diego is making sure its homeless students have the right tools to succeed in school.
One San Diego’s “We’ll have your back campaign” is distributing thousands of supplies to the San Diego School District’s less fortunate students.
Officials estimate more than 6,000 students are homeless in the district.
“A lot of these kids don’t get anything new and that’s why we make it is possible,” said Katherine Stuart-Faulconer, the wife of San Diego Mayor Kevin Falconer.
One San Diego will have several more similar events and drives this year.
