WALTER CLARK LEGAL GROUP DONATES BACKPACKS TO UNDERSERVED STUDENTS
Indio, CA – Students at Van Buren Elementary School in Indio, CA, will receive new backpacks courtesy of Walter Clark Legal Group for the start of the school year. 550 backpacks filled with new school supplies are scheduled for distribution from the school’s Multi-Purpose Room on Thursday, August 24, 2023. The donation is part of an effort by the personal injury law firm to give over 1,000 backpacks to the most economically disadvantaged schools in the communities it serves.
Van Buren Elementary is one of two schools chosen to receive new backpacks for the inaugural year of this program. Van Buren Elementary is the most economically disadvantaged school within the Desert Sands Unified School District. It serves approximately 550 students in Pre-K and Kindergarten through 5th grade. Ninety-six percent (96%) of its enrollment population are economically disadvantaged students, and ninety-four percent (94%) of its students receive free or reduced lunch. The other school receiving backpacks this year is Booker T. Washington Elementary in El Centro, CA.
Walter Clark Legal Group anticipates expanding this program to include additional schools next year. This latest effort is part of the law firm’s larger philanthropic mission to support kids and education. Staff from Walter Clark Legal Group will be at Van Buren Elementary as volunteers to help with the distribution of backpacks on August 24th.
