Boca Raton Airport Authority Helps Make a Difference in Local Community with Back to School Supply Drive
The Boca Raton Airport Authority hosted its Fifth Annual Back to School Supply Drive to benefit Spirit of Giving Network’s Back to School Bash. Several airport tenants, including Atlantic Aviation, Boomers, Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, Reliable Jet Maintenance, and Signature Flight Support, helped collect school supplies for the drive.
The Boca Raton Airport Authority and airport tenants collected ten boxes filled with various school supplies. “We enjoy helping Palm Beach County students prepare for the upcoming school year by collecting school supplies with the help of our airport tenants and the local community,” said Boca Raton Airport Authority Executive Director Clara Bennett.
School supplies collected included backpacks, personal hygiene products, socks, notebooks, paper, pencils, crayons, and glue sticks. Reliable Jet Maintenance alone provided more than seven boxes filled with backpacks and school supplies. These items were used to prepare backpacks during the Back-to-School Bash event on Saturday.
