‘Spirit of Giving’ annual Back to School Bash
The “Spirit of Giving” Back to School Bash aims to provide local children with new back-packs full of grade-appropriate supplies, uniforms, new shoes, haircuts, healthy snacks, vision screenings and access to medical resources and information.
At the event, students will be paired with a volunteer personal shopper to assist them in selecting their own backpack and supplies. The Spirit of Giving—a collaborative, non-profit organization with a focus on children and families in Palm Beach County—utilizes its 60 non-profit member organizations for this event to provide supplies to more than 4,000 local at-risk children.
Boca Raton Regional Hospital will also return to hold their Family Health Carnival, which is open to the public and will feature health resources, education, and screenings.
Wendy Friswell, executive director of Spirit of Giving says, “Spirit of Giving is dedicated to helping thousands of economically disadvantaged children and their families prepare for academic success in the new school year. We invite every member of the community to help by volunteering at the event or becoming a sponsor.”
The annual invite-only Back to School Bash serving Southern Palm Beach County children will be held Saturday, Aug. 8 , 2015 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Delray Beach Village Academy.
