In 2022, our community rallied together to:
- Fill over 17,000 backpacks with school supplies and delivered to 28 schools throughout Palm Beach County
- Raise over $200,000+ by companies, organizations and individuals throughout the community
- Formed over 30 corporate teams to drive impact and share EFPBC’s mission
By participating in the 2023 Backpack & School Supply Drive, you will prepare thousands of students a more equitable place to learn because of your support. Every dollar and pencil counts, because every student counts!
Individuals, companies and organizations partner with friends, co-workers, neighbors, classmates and family to raise awareness and funds for students and teachers in Palm Beach County.
Engage in a fun and memorable team building experience by volunteering at Red Apple Supplies to provide a hands-on way for individuals and companies to connect with local schools and teachers.
EFPBC will provide a School Supply Drive Toolkit which includes helpful tips for employees to participate in a company-wide or team-style school supply drive for the district’s highest-need students and schools.
Your financial gift empowers teachers and places some of our district’s highest-needs students in a more equitable learning environment along their educational journey
In 2022, the engagement of the community made educational excellence a priority to help transform Palm Beach County. Regardless of where a child calls home, on their first day of school, the quality of their backpack and school supplies were no longer be a barrier to their confidence and success in education.
