PSLA Hosts Back to School Event in the Watts Community

August 4, 2012

Philanthropic Society Los Angeles (PSLA), a support group of Children’s Institute, Inc. (CII), hosted a Back-to-School event to provide elementary school students and their families with back packs and other school supplies at the office of Los Angeles Youth Opportunity Movement – Watts (Yo! Watts). Several hundred families who receive services from CII and Yo! Watts attended the event, which also included free haircuts for boys and manicures for girls. Additional supplies will be distributed to an estimated 1,500 children and families.

Major sponsors included:

  • Accessory Innovations
  • Mattel
  • Herbalife Family Foundation
  • TJ Maxx
  • HomeGoods
  • Marshalls
  • Winners
  • HomeSense
  • Tiffany’s
  • The City of Los Angeles
  • Big Strike
  • Union Bank
  • The Center for Early Education

The event helped many families in one of Los Angeles’ most challenged communities who are unable to afford the expense of school supplies. The effort is one of many ways in which PSLA demonstrates its commitment to disadvantaged children and families of CII.
