The Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County is hosting its annual school supply and backpack drive to benefit club children and keep them on track for academic success.
The National Retail Federation estimates that families will spend an average of $685 on needed back-to-school supplies and clothing — an amount many low-income families can’t afford.
From now until July 29, you can donate backpacks and school supplies, or host a drive in your neighborhood or office.
Donations of gift cards to office supply stores or retail vendors are also welcomed and will be used by the clubs to purchase needed supplies from school-issued lists.
To get involved, call (561) 683-3287.
