MONTCLAIR, California (Wednesday, August 13, 2016) – Over 500 backpacks and school supplies valued at $19,500 were collected at last week’s Backpack drive, organized by Montclair Place to benefit children in the Ontario/Montclair region, and other vulnerable children in San Bernardino County.

Major contributors to the collection include supermarket Superior Grocers and nonprofit Christmas Cheer All Year.  Superior Grocers, with locations throughout the Inland Empire, donated 500 backpacks.  Christmas Cheer All Year, a nonprofit founded by Rick Lozano from KTTV, donated a van full of all the supplies a child will need on their first day of school.

KOLA 99.9 radio joined Superior Grocers and Christmas Cheer All Year at Montclair Place on Saturday, July 30, to present the donations to Children’s Fund, a 30 year-old nonprofit serving the most vulnerable children in San Bernardino County.

“Children are full of excitement on the first day of school,” says Stacy Iverson, President & CEO of Children’s Fund.  “Arriving with the tools they’ll need to succeed will make that day even more special for them. We are grateful to Montclair Place and their sponsors for such a generous gift.”

Founded in 1986, Children’s Fund is a nonprofit whose mission is giving our vulnerable children support, opportunity and hope by breaking destructive cycles through community partnerships. Since its inception, Children’s Fund has served more than 1.4 million children.
