Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County and Boca West Children’s Foundation (www.bocawestfoundation.org) held the 11th annual holiday shopping trip, at which 20 local kids ages 6 to 13 shopped at Old Navy in Boca Raton on Saturday, December 4. An additional 175 kids from the Boca Raton and Delray Beach Clubs received a $50 gift card to purchase clothing for themselves in the store at their convenience.
Later that morning, all 195 of the kids enjoyed a holiday brunch at the Boys & Girls Clubs. The brunch featured a DJ, gifts and food catered by The Lord’s Place, all provided by Boca West Children’s Foundation. Each child returned home with a toy from Santa and a harvest basket filled with a turkey, fresh vegetables and all the fixings for a holiday meal.
“Our Club members have sacrificed so much this year due to the pandemic, but our holiday traditions must survive. By making some adjustments to this beloved annual event, and with the continued support of the Boca West Children’s Foundation, our kids were able to enjoy the magic of the holidays,” said Eric Roby, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County.
