“You are never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.” – Dr. Seuss
Millions of students nationwide and even around the world will pick up a book on Wednesday, March 2, for the 19th annual Read Across America Day in celebration of reading and in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. It is an annual reading motivation and awareness program to help encourage every child in every community to celebrate reading.
Today we celebrate over 20 years of partnership with Palm Beach Publix and the Town of Palm Beach United Way. When it comes to community partners, there is no doubt that Publix Super Markets and their associates have made a positive, lasting impact in countless people’s lives in Palm Beach County.
It’s tax season, and time to start thinking about filing your taxes. If you are like me, I equate preparing my taxes to a trip to the dentist or being stuck in traffic.
But it could be less painful if you are one of nearly 70% of all U.S. tax filers who qualify to use MyFreeTaxes. Last year, more than 200,000 tax returns were filed on MyFreeTaxes.com, which represented a 2,400% increase since it launched.
In Part One of “Where Does My Donation Go,” we learned that 90 of the most remarkable volunteers have been trained and received all the paperwork needed to make funding decisions for the Town of Palm Beach United Way.
This year 90 dedicated volunteers will ensure that the Town of Palm Beach United Way is a good steward of your donation (and mine) – so that our gifts make the biggest possible impact in Palm Beach County. These volunteers will serve as the eyes and ears of thousands of our donors.
