About Us

Children, excited to learn!

Why We Do What We Do

 Many children and families cannot afford the basics of sneakers, socks and underwear.

A new uniform gives a child the confidence to go to school and be ready to learn.

It is important for kids to feel comfortable in school. Having a new uniform, sneakers, socks and underwear helps them socially, 

as well as academically, because they are not worried that their shirt doesn't fit, or they aren't in uniform.
They want to follow the rules, they want to do what’s right, they want to wear a uniform.  

It helps them focus on their school work when they don’t have to worry about those things.


Back to Basics Uniform Program

The Back to Basics Uniform Program provides more than 17,000 new school uniforms every year to children in need that attend elementary schools in Palm Beach County.


Back to Basics Angel Program

 The Back to Basics Angel Program provides over 7,500 children in need with the basic necessities of new sneakers, socks, underwear and a gift each year.  

The 2020 Great Charity Challenge!


Thanks to our "Kinky Boots" jumping team for winning $25,000 for Back to Basics! Thank you also to our generous sponsors: Kelli and Gerald Ford and Diamante Farm Dressage!

Grants and Cash Donations

We rely heavily on the grants and cash donations to fund the Uniform Program, as well as supplement the Angel Program for the children's names that are not selected. 

In-Kind Donations

In-Kinds donations of new sneakers, socks, underwear and toys are always welcome to help supplement our Angel Program for when we need to provide these gifts directly.  We also keep a supply on hand through the year for emergency requests that we receive.

Adopt a Child or a Family

Individuals are encouraged to adopt a child or a whole family to provide the basics for the Angel Program.  We welcome all donations.

Adopt a School

Perhaps a business or organization would like to adopt all the children from a particular school.  We work with 50 elementary schools with varying numbers of children from each school.  We would be happy to partner your business with a school.
