PSLA's 3rd Annual Back2School Giveaway in Watts

August 2, 2014

Close to 5,000 children and their families filled Ted Watkins Park in Watts on Saturday, August 2, for the 3rd Annual Back to School Giveaway, hosted by Philanthropic Society Los Angeles (PSLA), a support group of CII.

Families who receive services through CII and partnering organizations received new backpacks filled with school supplies for their children in preschool through 12th grade, and enjoyed cooking demos and snacks from Watts Healthy Farmers Market, as well as giveaway items from other event supporters.

The Back to School Giveaway assists families unable to afford the expense of school supplies and equips students for success in the coming school year. The event is one of many ways in which PSLA demonstrates their commitment to the children and families of CII, a nationally recognized organization that helps children and youth severely affected by community and family violence, and other trauma.
