On any given day, nearly 1,500 people in Palm Beach County are homeless. That’s down from 2013 numbers. But it’s still 1,500 too many.
Please, take a few moments to help. Our publisher, the Palm Beach Board of Realtors, is partnering with the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County to provide basic necessities to the men, women and children who survive without a place to call home.
Think of it. When you live somewhere not meant for human habitation, how in the world are you to keep your underthings clean? How long will your socks last, when you only have one pair?
We’re collecting new socks, underwear and plain white T-shirts of all sizes (XS-3X) for children, women and men. We’re happy to do the shopping for you, if you’d like to make a cash donation. Our goal? To help prepare children to go back to school and their parents to find or return to work, something they cannot do without basic necessities.
Please drop donations at the Palm Beach Board of Realtors, 140 Royal Palm Way, Suite 205, Palm Beach, FL 33480, or mail a check with “Homeless Coalition” written in the memo. For more information, email or call Executive Vice President Tracy Mallette at 561-659-3810.
