Kiwanis Club of Palm Beach Gardens
The goal of the Kiwanis Club of Palm Beach Gardens and its Foundation is to improve the lives of the youth of our community and beyond. Making a difference is and always will be our greatest reward.
At Resource Depot we believe in education through imagination. We believe in a more creative and sustainable future starting with our community. And most importantly, we believe that we can all become more conscious of what we throw away and the potential left in our waste. Our job as a center for creative reuse is to collect all the things that nobody wants anymore and give them to those who can use them. We do this through memberships. But we do more than just collect and distribute upcycled items, we also teach amazing ways to put all these items to use at home, in the classroom or in a business. We do this through field trips, summer camp, in-house workshops, and outreach programs.
