Dr. Roger De Sesa stands amongst the kids at the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley after dropping off backpacks donated by his customers for the kids in 2009.

 

De Sesa Chiropractic Inc. invites community members to donate a backpack with school supplies on Saturday, Aug. 28, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its office in Valencia.

In addition, Dr. Roger De Sesa will assess children's backpacks for proper fit for free on this day.

"Taking care of your spine is like going to the dentist. It's something that needs to be checked regularly to maintain a healthy body," said De Sesa.

"Children nowadays tend to carry heavy backpacks that can affect their posture and spine. In addition, they are affected by falls and injuries, just as adults are."

The new supplies requested in a new backpack are as follows: half-inch three-ring binder, pencil bag, highlighter, pink eraser, package loose-leaf notebook paper, three No. 2 pencils, two black ball point pens, two red ball point pens and three colored pocket folders.

In exchange for donating a new backpack with supplies, current customers of De Sesa's will receive a free adjustment and new patients can have a complete exam with x-rays, and follow up consultation, for only $40.

All supplies donated will be given to the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley to be distributed to their participants.

This is the third year De Sesa has held the supplies drive for the Boys & Girls Club.

Anyone interested in an adjustment, initial exam, or free backpack assessment must make an appointment in advance by calling (661) 294-0429.
