Island Hospitality Helps Local Kids GEAR UP for the 2017/2018 School Year.

It is time to kick off our Gear Up for 2017

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.

In lieu of school supplies, we will also be collecting Old Navy gift cards for uniform purchases.

I encourage everyone to participate!!! No matter the size of the contribution, you CAN make a difference by helping an inner-city child beam with pride as they get off the bus on their first day of school!!!

Thank you for your generosity!!!
