Annual Back to School event
On August 12th Check Center will be holding our annual Back to School event. The event time is from the hours of 11:00 am and 2:00 pm


On August 12th Check Center will be holding our annual Back to School event. We started this event in 2006 and it has grown over the years. 6650 Commerce BLVD. Suite 9, Rohnert Park, CA. 94928

Our major goal is to help provide children with the proper tools needed to have a good school year. Many families struggle with paying for items such as backpacks, school supplies and other back-to-school necessities; this is why Check Center has dedicated one time a year to provide the community free of charge these items. 

We make this event fun for the families who participate. In the past years we had great participation with local police, fire department and other government agencies to provide more free services to the community. Even local businesses have lent their support by offering FREE goods that day. Check Center even holds raffles and serves refreshments while the kids go through the process of getting their school supplies. 

Average year Check Center gives out over 1,800 backpacks in that one day and this year will be no different, we hope to give out over 3,200 backpacks to the communities near our 18 locations. For every backpack we provide that’s one more parent who has gained a little more peace of mind, the child goes prepared to school and ready to learn. 

Once again this is a free event Check Center puts on once a year and we would love for you to be a part of it or help us promote it. The event time is from the hours of 11:00 am and 2:00 pm at each of our 18 locations in San Diego and the Bay Area.  

You can contact Store Manager Yasmeen Bernal directly for more details of the event at 707.584.5710.

Opening reception Saturday, August 19, 5-7pm and August 19 - Sept 25 Tuesday through Saturday, 11am-5pm
