Town of Palm Beach United Way
School Supply Drive
The 11th Annual Town of Palm Beach United Way School Supply Drive collected $14,155 and thousands of school supplies to benefit children in need during the 2023-2024 school year. The drive ran July 23 through August 6.
In total, the School Supply Drive received 14,781 individual items, including pencils, pens, crayons, markers, notebooks, erasers, backpacks, folders and binders.
For the second consecutive year, the School Supply Drive featured a logo contest. Students 18 and under were asked to submit a drawing depicting the Town of Palm Beach United Way’s annual School Supply Drive, including a brief description of what they created and why.
The winning design was created by Isabella Cote, 14, of Royal Palm Beach. The mixed-media design features animals native to Florida. Her design will serve as next year’s logo, and she will also receive a $200 Amazon Gift Card.
In total, 13 children participated in the contest. Students whose designs were not selected received a $20 Amazon Gift Card.
