"The supplies in the backpack will last us all year!" exclaimed one parent. "We are so grateful to CBS and Upward Bound House for helping us."
Among those handing out backpacks was Lara Spencer, host of The Insider, Culver City's Mayor Christopher Armenta, and John Nogawski, President of CBS Television Distribution. As well, Pitfire Pizza in Culver City provided a free pasta and pizza dinner for all those in attendance.
