Balance Fitness Toy Drive Helps Back To Basics

Balance Fitness donors supplied an array of “books and balls.”

Balance Fitness in Wellington recently held a toy drive for Back to Basics. The staff at Balance Fitness thanks all who donated to the toy drive.

Back to Basics is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization serving more than 10,000 needy children in Palm Beach County through the Angel Program. Donations helped to fulfill the nonprofit’s mission of enabling children to go to school with dignity and be ready to learn by providing new uniforms, sneakers, socks and underwear, along with a toy for the holidays.

Back to Basics also operates a school uniform program in addition to the Angel Program annually. This year, the school uniform program ended with 21,600 uniforms being delivered to 60 schools.

This season, Balance Fitness chose the theme of “Books and Balls” as a way to encourage fitness and sports in the children, along with fostering a love for reading. Together, the amount of books, balls and cash donations from Balance Fitness will greatly impact the children.
