10 am Breakfast & Backpack Giveaway


If you are someone you know needs some extra help providing school supplies for their children, please come to our Backpack Giveaway Event!! Every year, we help hundreds of children with new backpacks, full of school supplies!

Children must be registered* and present to pick up a backpack. No limits on how many children, but we do first come – first served. Grades K-12.

Supplies include folders, composition books, pencils, pens, erasers, glue bottles and sticks, scissors, pencil boxes, hand sanitizers, and more.

We also serve free pancake breakfast, and this year we’ll be handing out free boxes of groceries (items vary, but can include produce, drinks, cans, bread, etc.) through our Food for Life Ministry (free grocery distribution every Saturday). We also have lots of activities to keep the kids busy while we organize and work through the registration list to give out supplies.


If you’d like to donate or volunteer, please contact our ministry  at, or call us 760.439.3300. You can also contact us either through email or phone, if you have any questions about the event.


*Unfortunately, due to no-shows, we are unable to do pre-registration. Please come at 8 am to register your children.
