Spirit of Giving Network, Inc. Is a registered 401(c)(3) nonprofit that serves children and families in Palm Beach County.  Their vision is to create more unified, vibrant communities.  The Spirit of Giving has two signature projects during the year, the Holiday Gift Drive and the Community Back to School Bash.

Lindy Harvey, Spirit of Giving Executive Director, stated last year they provided over 4,000 children in Southern Palm Beach County with a backpack full of supplies to begin the school year.  Due to COVID-19, this year’s event will not be like years past, they know the need will be even greater and are committed to getting all the supplies the children need to start the new school year with some normalcy.
