We’ve been travelling and things have been quiet — But soon Boca Chamber Festival Days will be upon us.

The month-long festival actually kicks off on Saturday July 27th with the Spirit of Giving’s Back to School Bash.

At the event, students are paired with a “Shopping Buddy” to assist them in handpicking their backpack and supplies.

Spirit of Giving collaborates with over 60 of its nonprofit community partners.

Boca Raton Regional Hospital will host their Family Health Carnival at the Bash, promoting healthy living with resources, education and screenings.

Over 4,500 local underserved K-12 students and their families will receive the tools they need to succeed in the upcoming school year with school supplies, backpacks, shoes, health screenings, haircuts, and more.

Following the Back to School Bash, it’s gonna be a busy August!
