CityPlace and Palm Beach Broadcasting are teaming up to collect school supplies to help teachers keep their classroom stocked.
From now until Friday, Aug. 15, local residents and businesses are encouraged to drop off new school supplies and other classroom materials at a number of CityPlace collection bins. Supplies needed include paper, pens, pencils, erasers, markers, glue, scissors, folders, calculators, backpacks and other basic items.
With every donation, individuals will receive a special coupon to the shops at CityPlace, and businesses will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a free office lunch from Mellow Mushroom, valued at $100.
On Saturday, Aug. 16, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., teachers are invited to shop for free at a temporary store setup in the Palm Beach Improv location. Teachers can also enter a drawing for a chance to win prizes, including a $250 shopping spree to CityPlace, tickets to see an Inprov show and a two-night stay and $100 hotel credit at the Boca Raton Resort & Beach Club.
To shop the store, teachers must pre-register at WRMF.com, WIRK.com, Sunny1079.com or THEX1023.com. Teachers also need to bring proof of employment. All four Palm Beach Broadcasting stations — 97.9 FM, 104.3 FM, 103.1 FM and 102.3 FM — will broadcast live from CityPlace Plaza from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, Aug. 13 to 15 to help generate interest and excitement for the teacher shopping party.
