School Supplies Giveaway Featuring Dodgers Pitcher Clayton Kershaw at Echo Park


People have been lining up at Echo Park since 2 a.m. Saturday for a school supplies giveaway that featured a guest appearance from Dodgers Pitch Clayton Kershaw. The back-to-school bash gives away backpacks to children in need.

“Being prepared and ready and just having to focus on school is great,” says Deborah Sanchez, a college student.

There were also free pencils, notebooks and socks up for grabs for kids who are going back to class soon.

“I’m a single mom, I’m struggling to get school supplies for my daughter, so it’s really helpful to come to an event like this where they help the community,” parent Elizabeth Macias said Saturday.

Hosted at the Dream Center, the event was on a first come, first served basis. There was also a water slide for the kids in attendance and other games to play during the event.

Kershaw personally handed out 3,500 backpacks of necessities.

“Give a kid a backpack and see their faces and be able to do it and have our kids with us too and be able to see what it really feels like to bring joy to a kid’s life because they might not be the same having opportunities growing up is really cool for us,” Kershaw added.
