Urban Youth Impact holding their Back 2 School Blast today in West Palm Beach

Local students are getting some much needed school supplies before classes start back in less than two weeks.

Urban Youth Impact is giving out school supplies to more than 200 pre-selected Palm Beach County students at the Back 2 School Blast.

Urban Youth Impact’s mission is to serve inner city youth and mentor them.

The group, which has been around for 17 years, is hoping to provide the students with the tools they’ll need to get through the school year.

The kids received items such as back packs, notebooks, pencils and clothing.

More than fifty sponsors participated in the Back 2 School Blast, buying $150 dollars worth of personalized items for each student.
