Adopt-A-Family has been a Town of Palm Beach United Way partner agency since 2000. They restore families with children in crisis to stability and self-sufficiency by providing access to all-encompassing services which include housing and quality after-school activities.
One program funded by the Town of Palm Beach United Way is Project Grow. This program is a licensed afterschool/out-of-school program that serves up to 60 children in kindergarten through fifth grade from formerly homeless and low-income families in Palm Beach County.
TIS THE SEASON FOR COLLECTING TOYS NOVEMBER 14 – DECEMBER 6
The holiday season is a very special time and the Town of Palm Beach United Way is proud to once again partner with the Palm Beach Daily News, Palm Beach Fire Rescue, and UBS Financial to collect toys for families who have difficulty making ends meet. Many families in Palm Beach County struggle to buy food, medicine, and pay the rent – often with little or no money left over to buy holiday gifts for their children.
Our monthly Volunteer Spotlight recognizes Town of Palm Beach United Way volunteers who are passionate, inspiring and dedicated. They are individuals committed to transforming lives and who invest in our vision of building healthy and strong communities.
Bud Tamarkin has been a volunteer at the Town of Palm Beach United Way for over 12 years. Bud serves on our Allocation Committee. What sets Bud apart from our other volunteers is his age – he turned 90 this year. We sat down with Bud to ask him a few questions about volunteering at the Town of Palm Beach United Way and what it means to him.
