The GL Homes and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County is making its final push to collect 2,400 new backpacks and school supplies for Palm Beach County children and teens in need.
With new economic pressures due to inflation, Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County is facing an enormous challenge as it aims to collect enough backpacks and school supplies for the 2022-23 school year.
“Our goal is to make sure that our Club families don’t have to worry about the expenses of brand-new backpacks and school supplies. We want every member to be well-equipped for success in the classroom,” said GL Homes Senior Director of Community Relations Sarah Alsofrom.
School supplies drop-off locations open to the public can be found at this link. Donations can also be made virtually by purchasing backpacks stuffed with needed school supplies for only $10 per backpack on their website.
