Art Synergy Kicks Off Annual Backpack and Art Supply Drive In Palm Beach County

Art Synergy kicks off its annual drive for backpacks, art and school supplies and makes it easier than ever to participate, even if you don’t live nearby!  The Rickie Report shares the details of drop off spots and endorses the ease of having items shipped to The Box Gallery, headquarters for this drive and Art Synergy. The Drive begins this weekend, July 25 and ends August 6, 2022.
Will you help us reach our 1,000 backpack goal?








Art Synergy, Inc, a 501 (c) 3, has committed to collecting 1000 backpacks for Palm Beach County children returning to school this August.



“Many families in Palm Beach County have hit very hard and quite possibly suffered the greatest economic hit in the last few years.” says, Art Synergy founder and CEO, Rolando Chang Barrero, “That’s why we are calling for everyone to respond to our friends and families here in Palm Beach County immediately.”  Among the organizations that will co-sponsor this years drive are The YWCA of Palm County, The Latin Quarter, and MoviesMakingADifference. 


Donated Backpacks and Art Supplies



Rolando goes on to explain, “The campaign, designed for all students serves two purposes: raise awareness of the poverty and challenges that our PBC families have suffered during the on-going pandemic and housing crisis. We feel that together we can alleviate some of the costs in preparing our  children for the upcoming school year by providing backpacks, art supplies and basic school supplies for children”.
