Yours Humanly, a local nonprofit that provides access to education to underserved children, recently donated 80 backpacks filled with school supplies to delighted children at Dublin's Kidango Emerald Vista Center, which serves preschoolers from subsidized households in the Tri-Valley. For some children, this was their first backpack—and the joy showed on their faces. Teachers and parents clapped and took photos as the children, who will be entering kindergarten in the fall, received their backpacks filled with pencils, markers, notebooks, erasers, sharpeners, and rulers. This event was made possible through the groundwork efforts of Assemblywoman Catharine Baker, 16th District, who worked with Yours Humanly Executive Director Sunny Singh to connect the nonprofit with the school in need.
“It’s great to see organizations partner together to support local school children for whom obtaining needed school supplies is a financial hardship,” says Assemblywoman Baker, who champions education as one of her four legislative pillars. “Together we are working to support student success in the coming year."
