On Friday, August 12th, about 1,000 children from 16 different San Juan schools came to New Life Church to received everything they need to have a successful school year at an event called First Day. Children came with their families and received a fully loaded backpack, a brand new school outfit, a new pair of socks and shoes, a professional hair cut, dinner and a bag of groceries all at a fun festival atmosphere. First Day is made possible by the generosity of many businesses, organizations and churches engaged in the San Juan Unified School District and coordinated by the non profit AboutKidz.
