Back 2 School BlastIsland Hospitality team members help local kids GEAR UP for the School Year As you know a majority of charity efforts focus around the holiday season, however, there are other opportunities for us to make a difference. For this reason, we are partnering with Urban Youth Impact, which is a local charity serving Tamarind Avenue corridor and surrounding areas in WPB, Riviera Beach, and Boynton Beach. They are dedicated to providing educational enrichment, resources, safe environments, personal mentorship, and job-readiness programs to facilitate the growth and development of Palm Beach County’s underserved youth. The areas they served have all been identified as areas with the most at-risk children based on various indicators such as poverty levels, school readiness, graduation, and teen birth rates. We will have collection boxes in all 3 suites from now until July 28th. Attached is a list of needed school supplies with the most needed items being backpacks, dictionaries, and 3 ring binders.
