School's back from summer break and supplies are needed! Marlins Better Halves Back to School Drive to take place August 11-12

School is just around the corner, and the Miami Marlins, along with the Marlins Better Halves, are asking for fans to donate school supplies for students in need in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Fans can take advantage of tax free shopping this weekend, which is also taking place at the Marlins Park New Era Team Store. Donors who give to the Marlins Better Halves Back to School Drive on August 11 or 12 will receive a ticket voucher for a future 2018 Marlins home game and a coupon for free entry to SeaWorld or 50 percent off entry to Aquatica.

Items will be collected at the Home Plate Entrance on Saturday, August 11, and at The 5th Base, presented by Corona Light, on Sunday, August 12. Supplies will be donated to Marlins Charity Partner Dibia DREAM, a local nonprofit that provides a safe afterschool pace and fosters life skills development through STEM, sports, and recreational education for underserved youth.
