To help students reach their full educational potential, Wellington’s Community Services Department is hosting a Back-to-School Supply Drive now through July 22.
Supplies can be dropped off between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the following locations: the Wellington Municipal Complex (12300 W. Forest Hill Blvd.); the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd.); Wellington’s Community Services Office (1092 Wellington Trace); the Lake Wellington Professional Centre (12133 Ken Adams Way); Ultima Fitness (12799 W.
