Can you believe it’s already that time of year again? School supplies have hit the shelves in local stores, and just in time for the Town of Palm Beach United Way’s annual BOXED FOR SUCCESS school supply drive organized by Youth United (a group of local high school students working to further the mission of the Town of Palm Beach United Way).
