The Kiwanis Club of West Palm Beach has supported Back to Basics for many years.  The club provides financial assistance and supplies  including school uniforms, sneakers, socks, underwear, and toys.  This helps Back to Basics to provide gift bags to over 10,000 Palm Beach County elementary school children and operates with no paid staff with some shown at the right.    Just before Christmas in 1984, Beverly Perham used $500 of her own money to provide clothing and toys for 30 children who had just arrived on a boat from Haiti with absolutely nothing.    From that, she realized there were many children in our own community that don't even have the basic necessities.   Beverly recognized the importance of school children having the basic necessities in order to attend school and learn.   As a result, the Angel Program was born.
