Elite DNA Behavioral Health, a comprehensive behavioral and mental health care provider, recently hosted a Back-to-School Supplies Drive that collected 4,200 items of school supplies to help area students prepare for the new school year.
The month-long collection was held at Elite DNA’s more than 20 offices across the state and gathered an array of essential 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. The drive benefited students in schools across Broward, Charlotte, Clay, Collier, Duval, Hernando, Hillsborough, Lee, Leon, Palm Beach, Polk, Sarasota and Seminole counties.
“Purchasing school supplies can be a costly expense for families, especially as they already face rising food and gas prices, which can lead to further stress and anxiety for families and students,” said Elizabeth Dosoretz, LCSW, founder and CEO of Elite DNA Behavioral Health. “We are thankful for all who contributed to help local students start the school year on the right foot with the resources they need to be successful this school year.”
