“Hosting this costume drive for local non-profits and the local community in need of support is very important to us,” said Tom Copeland, Director of My Gym Royal Palm Beach. “My Gym is more than just a fitness facility for children-it’s a place to empower them by helping to develop the skills, confidence and positive self-image they need to become healthy young adults. Community actions groups, like New Hope Charities share this compassion as they shape the lives of underprivileged children to become healthy, productive adults.”
