Uniforms will be distributed August 14 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the South Olive Park in West Palm Beach.  Children need to be accompanied by a parent.  Each child is limited to two sets of uniforms and each family is entitled to a total of six sets of uniforms. There is no charge for the uniforms. The day of the distribution there will be helpers available who speak English, Spanish, and Creole.
