MORE THAN 300 STUDENTS AND TEACHERS from Palm Beach public schools received brand new school supplies on the first week of school. The donation was made possible by the Palm Beach County Bar Association's Young Lawyers Section, which donated scissors, crayons, colored markers, rulers, notebook paper, spiral notebooks, composition books, pens, and pencils. The supplies were given to students who were eligible for the federal breakfast and lunch program. "You know it's a needed and appreciated project when the students are thankful to get even the basic school supplies," said Jason Guari, president of the Young Lawyers Section. "The students and teachers have been very thankful and appreciate us taking the time to personally distribute the supplies." Supplies were also donated for all teachers, including copy paper, scissors, white out, dry erase markers, and staples. "As attorneys, we think it's important to give back to our community, and this is a great way to help teachers and parents," said Allison Kapner, the chair of this year's back to school benefit. "It can cost a parent more than $100 to get just one child ready for school."
