"Every child's first day should be a first class experience."

Mark Tucker, Founder

First Day provides the opportunity for almost 1,000 low-income and at-risk children to begin their school year with confidence and enthusiasm. Our First Day event has a festive atmosphere with lots of games and activities for the whole family. Each registered child that attends the First Day event receives a backpack filled with school supplies, a haircut from a licensed professional, and a new outfit of shirt, pants, and shoes. Each family in attendance receives a bag of non-perishable food items to take home with them after the event.


Need Help with School Supplies?

AboutKidz wants to help! We believe every child should start the school year feeling confident and excited. That's why we've been providing brand new back packs loaded with grade specific school supplies to almost 1,000 children in our area for over 10 years. This year's First Day will be on Friday, August 7th at 6:00 PM at 8101 Sunset Avenue in Fair Oaks.
