Back-To-School Bonanza Aug. 18 In Wellington

Help your children gear up for an exciting new school year at the fourth annual Back-to-School Bonanza on Saturday, Aug. 18 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Wellington Whole Foods Market (2635 S. State Road 7).

Enjoy family-friendly lunch dishes and school snacks served throughout the store, and learn valuable back-to-school safety information provided by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, including stranger danger, bullying, Internet safety and bicycle safety.

With a $5 donation, families can take a safety quiz and receive a child’s reusable lunch bag filled with goodies. All contributions will be donated to the Police Athletic League and turned over to a Wellington-area elementary school to help purchase school supplies. The PBSO will also provide complimentary child ID cards, and emergency vehicles will be in the parking lot for children to explore.

The Back-to-School Bonanza is a collaborative effort made possible by Whole Foods Market, Wellington’s Safe Neighborhoods staff, the PBSO and Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue.

For more information, call Whole Foods Market at (561) 904-4000 or Wellington Neighborhood Advocate Meridith Tuckwood at (561) 310-3626.
