National Night Out Against Crime, Delray

Yes, it's that time again; time to get ready for Back to School. Some free school supplies are being offered at numerous events in Palm Beach County for students returning to school for the 2024 fall session.

Events sometimes include free physicals, food vouchers, or even free haircuts. Back To School events occasionally include fun activities and entertainment, plus many provide free backpacks stuffed with school supplies for pre-registered students.

Eligibility requirements vary at different events and often the events require students to show proof of residency in that town to qualify for free items. You can also find back-to-school events with supply giveaways in Broward and back-to-school events with giveaways in Miami-Dade.
