The GL Homes and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County Back To School Drive ended successfully with over 5,000 backpacks stuffed with essential school supplies collected and distributed to 20 Boys & Girls Clubs located throughout Palm Beach County. Due to strong support from community partners, all Boys & Girls Club members are well equipped to achieve during the 2023-2024 school year.
“We truly cannot thank GL Homes enough for their continuous support of our annual Back to School Drive,” said Grace Madden, Marketing & Events Manager for Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. “All of our Club members headed back to the classroom fully equipped for a successful school year and that would not have been possible without the support from GL Homes and community partners.”
The GL Homes and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County Back To School Drive started June 1 and ran through August 6. Over 50 community partners participated in the drive to help rally the community to support local children and families. Partners included Tropical Shipping, The Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, TradeStation, Ed Morse Honda, Cadillac, and Toyota, Starbucks and many more.
The yearly Back to School Drive organized by GL Homes and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County aims to motivate the local community to gather essential school supplies. These supplies are crucial for elementary, middle, and high school students from low-income backgrounds to succeed in the classroom. Given that 95% of Club members come from families living at or below the federal poverty level, a successful Boys & Girls Club back-to-school drive becomes vital to ensure that all Club members have the necessary resources to begin the school year and excel in their academics.
