Every student in the Los Angeles, Inglewood and Moreno Valley Unified school districts will be receiving a free backpack, just in time for the start of the school year. The L.A. Clippers and their newly-signed superstar Kawhi Leonard announced Tuesday morning that they will be donating one million backpacks. The news was delivered during an event at Leonard’s alma mater, Cloverdale Elementary School. “My goal this year is to make a meaningful contribution both on and off the court,” Leonard said in a statement. “This felt like the right way to get started. It was important to me to make this announcement in my hometown of Moreno Valley at my former Elementary School, but the benefits this program will have across all of Los Angeles makes today even more special.” “For eight years, we’ve been providing basic essentials to lower-income children in Los Angeles and around the country,” Weinstein said. “The children in our program, the school-age children, it’s backpacks that they struggle with.” Since their inception, Baby2Baby has provided 70 million items to impoverished children, including diapers, shoes and school uniforms.
