Back to School at Westfield Broward: Month-Long Supply Drive & Gift Rewards during Tax-Free Weekend!


As students head back to school virtually, in person, or both, Westfield Broward is asking for the public’s help to ensure that those who need school supplies will be well-equipped! With its Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive and Tax-Free Weekend Shopping (including a gift with purchase), Westfield Broward is pleased to support the local community.

Thousands of Broward County’s most in-need students are at risk of starting the new school year without the critical supplies they need to be set up for academic success. During the unprecedented circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, support for students is needed now more than ever.

WHO:


Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive: Westfield Broward will partner with The Pantry of Broward and Y100 to conduct a month-long drop-off supply drive. Items needed are backpacks, paper, tissues, hand sanitizers and masks, calculators (regular and scientific), folders (binders and prongs), USB flash drives, protractors and compasses, tabbed dividers, index cards, highlighters (yellow), pencils and pencil sharpeners, crayons and markers, and headphones.
