GL Homes and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County’s Back To School Drive ends with a Stuff-The-Bus event on Saturday, July 30 , from 10 AM to 2 PM at Florence De George Boys & Girls Club in West Palm Beach. The event in collaboration with WAY-FM 88.1 is the final push to raise enough supplies for 2,400 Boys & Girls Club members to return to the classroom with the supplies needed for a successful school year. Tropical Smoothie Café will be in attendance to supply free smoothies and lunch to those that donate.
90% of Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County members live below the poverty line, making it critical that 2,400 stuffed backpacks are collected. Starting the school year with the needed school supplies will help Club members to overcome the historic achievement gap caused by the pandemic. Economic pressures due to increasing inflation have also impacted many families and have caused more challenges.
