For some Palm Beach County children, fundamental necessities like school supplies are simply out of their financial reach. This is a harsh reality of their everyday existence. The International Association of Governesses and Childcare Specialists, Inc., a non-profit company dedicated to empowering and inspiring children and families, is on a mission to help solve this problem by ensuring students have the essential tools for learning. Implements like pencils, crayons and glue may seem minor, but providing these basic necessities is a huge step towards their academic achievement. This year, our goal is to provide $20,000 value in school supplies to Palm Beach County students. The International Association of Governesses and Childcare Specialists, Inc. hopes to provide backpack donations to local children in need, but we are depending on financial support from businesses and organizations like yours. We realize that you receive many requests like this, but we believe our commitment to the Palm Beach community starts with its children.
