Backpack Drive A Success At Local B&G Club

Wellington Mayor Anne Gerwig was on hand Monday, July 29 as Waste Management distributed backpacks to children at the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club. Waste Management donated almost 300 new backpacks to the local Boys & Girls Club. Every summer, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County holds a Back-to-School Supply & Backpack Drive to provide needed items for club members to go back to school with confidence. The goal of the drive is to supply all 3,000 Boys & Girls Club members across the 13 Palm Beach County clubs with a backpack full of school supplies.
