Sutter County’s Child Support Services coordinated the collection of new backpacks for students returning to school this month. According to the Department’s Cynthia Weinel, who directed the project, the community donated 62 backpacks and enough school supplies to fill each bag.
The backpacks were distributed to Sutter County school children familiar to the department staff through their caseloads. Child Support Services works to help ensure children are financially supported by both parents.
