To the delight of many Palm Beach County Students and their families, many kids were able to return to in person instructions on September 21, 2020. Caridad was so pleased once again to hold its annual Back to School Event at the Center on September 26, 2020. Backpacks filled with essential school supplies were distributed to over 500 needy students ranging from first to eighth grade. Families in attendance also received free personal protective equipment, pertinent information about COVID-19,and social determinants of health from our Community Health Workers.
Special thanks go out to our Presenting Sponsor – The Wellington Equestrian Group, as well as our other sponsors and contributors including, Spirit of Giving and Christ Child Society of Boca Raton. Caridad would also like to thank its volunteers who helped with the distribution of supplies including American Heritage Pre-Med Club, Green Tree Foundation, American Chaplain Services Association, as well as several Caridad Patient Moms.
