Back 2 School Backpack Drive

Thank you to everyone who donated backpacks, school supplies, and money for Twin Lakes Food Bank’s Back 2 School – Give a Kid a Backpack fundraiser at the Summer Splash party. We raised $150, collected 30 backpacks, 17 pencil cases, over 100 glue sticks, 46 packs of crayons, 18 pairs of scissors, and much more! The organizer of the backpack drive said this year was their highest demand so far for school supplies and the Sierra Moms donation really made a difference.

Our Summer Splash party was last month and it was SO much fun! Sierra Moms families enjoyed a wonderful evening swim at the Folsom Aquatic Center. We noshed on delicious hot dogs from Doggiestyle Hot Dogs and yummy ice cream from the Pink Ice Cream Cart (keep both amazing vendors in mind for your next party!). Thank you to all who came out to play! A special thanks to our party planners, Melissa Ores and Chandra Kramer, and our volunteers who helped out at the event!

There is something for everyone here, except perhaps copious amounts of shade, which is in large part because the park is so new that shade trees have not had time to mature.

McKinley Park in East Sacramento

McKinley park is in Sacramento, but it’s right off the freeway and such a cool park with unique play equipment making it worth the 25 minute drive. It’s convenient location just off the freeway also makes a great “stopping over” point to break up the drive to Ikea, the airport, or other out of town destinations. In the spring the trees overlooking the duck pond next to the playground are covered in beautiful pink blossoms.
