School Supply and Backpack Drive Is In Need of Items

Boys & Girls Club of Palm Beach County Staff
June 11, 2018

Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County is hosting a school supply and backpack drive to benefit Club children and keep them on track for academic success.

The National Retail Federation (NRF) estimated families will spend an average of $668 on needed back-to-school supplies and clothing—an amount many low-income families can’t afford.

Every year, Boys & Girls Clubs works with community partners to send disadvantaged children to school prepared with the supplies they need to succeed.

From now until Friday, July 27, the community can donate school supplies or host a supply and backpack drive in their 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.

Suggested supplies include backpacks, composition books (wide rule), spiral notebooks, construction paper, copy paper, pencils, pens, color pencils & markers, crayons, highlighters, post-It notes, glue sticks, tape rolls, student scissors, and other office supplies.

For information and drop-off locations, visit www.bgcpbc.org or call 561-683-3287.
