Since its creation, the Education Foundation's Red Apple Supplies Program has provided more than $5.5 million in free school supplies and resources to Palm Beach County County Public Schools teachers and students in need.
In order to make this program possible, we rely on dedicated volunteers to help teachers check in/out for shopping, stock shelves, sort donations, package products and pack online supply orders.
This is a great opportunity for individuals and a wonderful team-building activity for a group.
Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and have reliable transportation to/from volunteer locations.
