Jeans for Troops Day-November 6th

On November 6th, we will be participating in the GI Go Funds, nationwide Jeans for Troops dress down day. Teachers, staff, and students who donate $5 or more to GI Go Fund, can wear their favorite pair of jeans to school on November 6th. This small donation will help provide supportive services to military veterans, including housing for homeless veterans, job placement for unemployed veterans, and healthcare assistance to disabled veterans. We encourage all who've donated to wear a patriotic shirt with their jeans that day.


Please join our team to make your donation by visiting https://gigo.org/teams/franklin-academy-palm-beach-gardens/index.html
