About the Event
Did you know that one out of every four Los Angeles children lives below the poverty line? California has the highest child poverty rate in the nation with 1,618,889 low-income children. Los Angeles County is at the top with 27.8% of our children living in poverty. By the 3rd grade, these students are, on average, already two years behind their peers in reading and math.
Friends LA's Annual Back to School Drive was launched to close the educational gap for in-need K-5 students. New backpacks full of essential, grade-appropriate school supplies are collected and delivered to our youth. By donating to Friends LA's supply drive, you can ensure all our youth have the tools and support they need to succeed in school.
