New Horizons Caregivers, the Rotary and Delta Kappa Gamma packed hundreds of backpacks with love and school supplies this weekend. They’ll distribute the special packs to needy students in the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District.

“We filled 340 new backpacks and 240 grocery bags with all the school supplies that children need to go back to school,” said Cathy Jamieson, executive director of New Horizons.

The groups gathered at Dibble Auditorium on Saturday, Aug. 18, to sort the supplies and fill the much-needed care packages.
