First Annual Backpack Giveaway


The City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks and the Mayor’s Task Force on Youth Safety, in collaboration with the local nonprofit organization One Nation 805, are proud to present the “1st Annual Backpack Giveaway.”


This program will provide youth with free backpacks and school supplies while they last, courtesy of One Nation 805. This event will take place on Sunday, August 12th, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Abel Maldonado Community Youth Center, for youth ages 5-18 years.


There will also be Barbers and Hair Stylists on site to provide free haircuts (basic trim and cut), also provided by One Nation 805, as well as information booths from the Mayor’s Task Force on Youth Safety and the Armed Forces.  Music will be played throughout the event by 95.7 The Beat’s very own DJ Ewrek.


One Nation 805 club was founded to unite all passionate football fans from across the Central Coast.  The Club, with the help of members and local sponsors, has a mission to give back to those going through tough times by organizing fundraising events, volunteering and donating to families in need.
