Back-to-school drive continues with a strong push to increase donations



GL Homes and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County continues its back-to-school drive with a strong push to increase donations, with the goal of collecting enough backpacks stuffed with school supplies for thousands of Club members in the community.  With new economic pressures due to increasing 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 2022-2023 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 and that every Club member is well-equipped for success in the classroom, said GL Homes Senior Director of Community Relations Sarah Alsofrom. “Due to the historic achievement gap and the inflation in the economy it’s important to have ample support for children in the community who need it most.”

The GL Homes and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County Back To School Drive started June 1 and will run through August 1. Drop-off locations for backpacks and school supplies are located throughout Palm Beach County, including multiple Seacoast Bank branches, Starbucks stores and Palm Beach County Library System locations. Donations can also be made virtually at

“Backpacks and school supplies are essential items for our Club members’ success in the classroom,” said President & CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County Jaene Miranda. “Without these necessary items, our Club members will not be able to overcome the achievement gap caused by the pandemic. We count on our community partners to help us in forwarding our mission to ensure all children meet their full potential.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County continues to assist families who live below the poverty line, and it is critical that 2,400 stuffed backpacks are collected to ensure that all Club members are prepared to achieve during the new school year. With the GL Homes and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County Back To School Drive, thousands of children throughout Palm Beach County can enter the 2022-2023 school year with full confidence.
