Back-To-School Event At The Caridad Center

In its annual back-to-school initiative to aid underserved children and families in Palm Beach County, the Caridad Center distributed school supplies, 1,500 backpacks and a host of supportive services to 1,000-plus residents who came out for the community-wide event on July 28 at its Boynton Beach facility. Services, entertainment and activities provided throughout the day included demonstrations on oral health and healthy snacks, haircuts, clowns, face painting, a sea turtle presentation, a photo booth, and health screenings for hearing, vision and HIV.
