About

We have 100 drawstring backpacks (14" x 17"), plus 25 teddy bears donated by Build-A-Bear and 25 blankets donated by Valley National Bank. We need volunteers to help us stuff the backpacks -- they will be given to local children who are being removed from their families and being taken to a temporary foster home. If you are feeling extra generous, please bring 1-25 items that will fit in the 14" by 17" backpacks that will provide comfort or entertainment (such as small books, small teddy bears or stuffed animals, flannel blankets, granola bars, diapers). The children's ages range from birth to 17.

Park in the eastern lower level parking lot near PA BBQ (the entrance is between Sears and Bloomingdales).

Additionally, we will support Children's Hospital in West Palm Beach by stuffing fabric monkeys with fiberfill. The monkeys will be given to pediatric patients as a comfort item.

After all our back pack stuffing and monkey stuffing, we will meet up at Kabuki (5080 PGA Blvd, Unit 105, at PGA Commons - next to Rocco's Tacos) for a no-host happy hour. Please join us -- we'd love to meet you! Please RSVP at (858) 361-1511.
