Assemblymember Roger Dickinson (D-Sacramento) distributed over 500 backpacks to youth in the Sacramento area at Bannon Creek Elementary School in Natomas this past week. Dickinson’s third annual “Give Back(pack) Drive,” a back-to-school drive to collect backpacks and supplies for kindergarten through 6th grade students in Sacramento ran throughout August. Dickinson, with the help of the Sacramento River Cats’ mascot, Dinger, presented the backpacks at a school assembly.
“I am thankful for all of the generous donations we received from Sacramento area businesses and members of the surrounding community. Every child deserves to have the tools necessary to succeed in school,” said Assemblymember Dickinson (D-Sacramento).
