Thousands of children in the Coachella Valley will face the coming school year without the supplies needed to complete class assignments and do their homework. This year the goal is to fill at least 2,500 backpacks with all the supplies a child will need for a successful school year.
The 10th annual Backpack Bonanza Drive will be Saturday, August 10 from 7:00-9:00 AM at Coachella Valley Rescue Mission in Indio.
Bring your donations to the MIX 100.5 studio located at 1321 N. Gene Autry Trail in Palm Springs. Collections will be accepted until 5:00 PM Wednesday, August 7.
