Local students are all set for the new school year, thanks to a donation from UnitedHealthcare.

Starting school without the tools needed to succeed can put big obstacles in a developing child’s way. Backpacks and essential school supplies are imperative to help get children mentally, emotionally and physically prepared for school.
To help children prepare for the upcoming school year, UnitedHealthcare employees proudly donated 490 backpacks for underprivileged children in the community. Each backpack was filled with school essentials—such as notebooks, pens, pencils, erasers, markers, calculators, folders and paper. The backpacks were donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Cypress, Casa Youth Shelter in Los Alamitos, Olive Crest in Bellflower, Community Action Partnership of Orange County and Boys & Girls Club of Garden Grove.
New backpacks and supplies give children a sense of pride and excitement to go back to school. With these tools, children are more likely to attend school and complete homework—knowing they have the same chance at school success as their peers.
