Headquartered in Milpitas, Family Giving Tree is committed to providing backpacks filled with school supplies to those children in our communities who are most in need.
No backpacks, large bags or containers will be allowed at this year’s Bay to Breakers footrace in San Francisco as officials heighten security in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.
A Milpitas non-profit organization is helping low-income children start the school year with the necessary tools they need to succeed.
With the new school year just around the corner, dozens of San Jose parents camped out overnight outside a community center hoping for free school backpacks for their children.

Sacred Heart hopes to give away 2,000 backpacks filled with school supplies on August 12th but to meet that goal they need more help from the community.
