Let’s spread the love of reading and learning together!

This year the Pima County Sheriff’s Department will be giving out 3,000 backpacks with school supplies! Pima County Sheriff’s Department is committed to our community. While large gatherings are not feasible, under current county guidelines, we have been resolute to find a means to equip youth for the upcoming school year. Here are some important things to note for the event:

We are encouraging people to wear masks and to stay home if they are not feeling well.
The backpacks are first-come, first-serve.
There will be only one (1) backpack per school-aged child.
To receive a backpack the child must be present or the parent must have a birth certificate..
