Youngsters throughout Miami-Dade County will be returning to school on August 18. Many families do not have the means to purchase what is needed by these young students to prepare them for classes. We can all help! Three charities have reached out to SocialMiami to ask for help, and surely there are many others seeking back-to-school supplies. Let's show these kids that we care about them and arm them with what they need to participate with their peers. If you need more information, go to the websites of these organizations or call the SocialMiami office for help. You can make a difference!

Miami New Construction Show
