Elite DNA Behavioral Health launches Back-to-School Supplies Drive in Southeast Florida
By: Elite DNA Behavioral Health
From July 1-31, Elite DNA is collecting school supplies at 30 locations statewide and is calling on the community for support through donations of popular classroom items, including notebooks, college and wide-ruled paper, pocket folders, binders, pens, No. 2 and colored pencils, pink erasers, highlighters, pencil boxes, student scissors, glue sticks, wired headphones, sanitizing wipes and more. Cash donations and gift cards are also accepted for supplies to be purchased by Elite DNA staff.
In Southeast Florida, the drive will benefit students in schools across Broward, Martin and Palm Beach counties through Broward Education Foundation, Martin County School District and The Education Foundation of Palm Beach County.
"Back to school is already quickly approaching, which can cause a lot of stress for parents and students. Some parents are left wondering how they will be able to afford their child's school supplies, and that sense of worry can affect their children," said Elizabeth Dosoretz, LCSW, founder and CEO of Elite DNA Behavioral Health. "With costs continuing to rise, we need the community to help ease this burden and give every child the tools they need to succeed this year."
Elite DNA is collecting supplies at more than two dozen offices across the state, including Bradenton, Brandon, Brooksville, Cape Coral, Delray Beach, Fort Myers, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Jupiter, Lakeland, Largo, Lehigh Acres, Maitland, Naples, New Port Richey, Ocoee, Orange Park, Ormond Beach, Oviedo, Port Charlotte, Sarasota, Stuart, Tallahassee, Tampa, Venice, Wesley Chapel and Weston.
The community is invited to drop off donations of school supplies at any Elite DNA location between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays. Elite DNA locations in Southeast Florida include:
