STOCKTON — Stockton 209 Cares has scheduled its annual free Backpack Giveaway for children in need next month and plans to help 500 kids with supplies as they return to school.

The event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 29 at 5358 Pacific Ave., outside Sky Zone Trampoline Park at Sherwood Mall, will include free back-to-school haircuts and a car show hosted by C3norcal family car club — whose motto is “to help our community as best as we can.”

Children from kindergarten through 12th grade are eligible for the free supplies but must be present with a parent. Families must have proof of low income, such as an EBT or Medi-Cal card, unemployment, Social Security award letter or pay stub showing income less than $30,000 annually.
