Promises2Kids Hosts the 8th Annual Backpack & Flash Drive for Kids

Promises2Kids presents the 8th Annual Backpack & Flash Drive for Kids at PETCO Park during the San Diego Padres vs. Chicago Cubs game on August 19, 2009. Promises2Kids will be collecting backpacks and flash drives at every entrance to benefit the thousands of foster children, who were once victims of abuse.

The donations of backpacks and flash drives are essential in providing each child with a system to keep all of their schoolwork and computer assignments organized. On average, a foster child will live in at least seven different homes before they turn 18 years old, and these donated items will be key in helping them return to school this fall with school supplies that will help them succeed in the classroom. For more information please visit or call (858) 278-4400.

Promises 2 Kids, formerly the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation, is a 27-year-old nonprofit organization that has led the fight against child abuse and neglect in the County of San Diego since 1981.
