SAN FRANCISCO, California – As part of their ongoing statewide partnership with Kaiser Permanente and Target Inc., K to College provided all students at Hillcrest Elementary School in San Francisco with tote bags full of school and dental supplies. Each kit was valued at $65. Guests included San Francisco Superintendent Richard Carranza, who engaged with students in a Q&A session, during which he described his own path from public schools to college and eventually as Superintendent.
Rounding off an awareness campaign sponsored by Target and Kaiser Permanente, Comcast SportsNet brought a camera crew and sports reporter Fallon Smith, who spoke to students about the importance of education and its role in the sports world. This was the final distribution of school supplies to more than 30 schools in San Francisco for the 2013-2014 school year. This year’s distribution in San Francisco provided more than 12,000 students with these critical materials.
