Students get new backpacks in Hacienda Heights

Students at Palm Elementary School are the proud owners of new backpacks filled
with school supplies thanks to the help of community groups that were on the
campus Tuesday getting students ready for the new school year.

“We try to help our students get school supplies that many of their families
can no longer afford,” said Cathy Jamieson, executive director of New Horizons
Caregivers, the group coordinating the annual event.

Popular Community Bank and the local chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma supported
the effort.
