Though Los Angeles County’s students will likely start the school year online, many will still need school supplies.
The L.A. Care Health Plan and Blue Shield of California are holding a back-to-school drive-thru event outside a Pomona community resource center Saturday, providing hundreds of free backpacks filled with school supplies to anyone who shows up.
The event is taking place 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the resource center on 696 W. Holt Avenue in Pomona. Bags will be provided on a first come, first served basis, while supplies last.
Several other drive-thru events are planned for the Southern California region.
