Spirit of Giving’s Annual Back to School PBC

Saturday, August 3rd, 2024

We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you for making our Back-to-School PBC! event an unforgettable success! With your overwhelming support, we were able to brighten the lives of over 5,200 students in Grades K-12 at the South Palm Beach County Site.

The Spirit of Giving and our dedicated team worked tirelessly to ensure that over 10,000 students across Palm Beach County received backpacks filled with grade-appropriate supplies, parent resources, meals, and other essentials to kickstart the new academic year on a positive note. Your contributions, whether through donations, holding drives, volunteering, or spreading the word, have made a significant impact on the lives of our community’s children.

How You Helped:

  1. Donations: Your generous contributions, no matter the size, have been instrumental in supporting thousands of children who needed it the most. Your kindness and thoughtfulness have made a real difference in these young lives.

  2. Drives: We were delighted to see many of you going above and beyond by donating extra items such as deodorant, socks, and hand sanitizers, which have proven to be invaluable as students embark on their educational journeys.

  3. Volunteers: A massive event like Back-to-School PBC! would not have been possible without the dedication and support of our amazing volunteers. Your enthusiasm and selflessness made the event run smoothly, and your presence made it all the more special.

  4. Spreading the Word: Thank you for being the ambassadors of this cause and sharing the event with your friends and family. Your efforts in spreading awareness have strengthened the spirit of community and made this day possible.

Special Thanks:

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to our partners, sponsors, donors, and volunteers who wholeheartedly contributed their time, resources, and efforts. Your belief in the power of education and giving back has made a lasting impact on the lives of so many young students.
