Volunteer Project: Back to School PBC!
The new school year is just around the corner! Not all students have the supplies needed to begin school, and this year the need is even greater. Give your time, heart and humor to many of these students by volunteering at our annual Back to School PBC! event held throughout Palm Beach County.
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, July 30th at four locations throughout the county, serving approximately 10,000 students. Volunteers play a crucial role in making this event possible. Volunteers are needed on July 29th and July 30th.
On Friday, July 29th, volunteers will assist with backpack organization on tables by gender and grade; setup of tents, check in and troubleshooting stations; placement of banners, traffic cones and signs; and much more. We welcome anyone 16 and older to volunteer on July 29th for community service hours.
On Saturday, July 30th, volunteers will assist with checking in registered students, distributing backpacks and other resources to participating students, traffic management, Spanish and Creole translations, and much more!
