[ARCHIVED] Wellington Extends Gratitude for Back to School Supply Drive & Back to School Bash

Volunteer giving backpacks to a woman and her two children during Wellington's Back to School Bas

On Saturday, July 27th, our community partners joined us in hosting Wellington’s Annual Back to School Bash. With the support of our non-profit organizations, local businesses, and service providers we had more than 1,000 backpacks for distribution as well as school uniforms, new shoes, and socks for families in need.

The event brought the community together to celebrate and prepare our families for the upcoming school year. We would like to thank our event sponsor, The Christopher Aguirre Memorial Foundation for their generous contributions to make this event a success. We would also like to thank the Wellington Community Foundation, Back to Basics, the Rotary Club of Wellington, Kiwanis Club of Wellington, Trader Joes, Art Cellar, Wellington Regional Medical Center, Chick-Fil-A, Gehring Group, Jet Hauling, The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, and The Palm Beach County Library System for their contributions and support.
