Memorial Day is a day to remember and honor all of the men and women who have died while serving in the armed forces. 1.3 million people have lost their lives while serving in the armed services. Despite the somber nature of Memorial Day, it’s also a day when a lot of good can be done. If you’re looking for a way to honor those servicemen and women who have lost their lives in conflict, here are a few organizations working to help veterans and their families:
Achievement Centers for Children and Families has been a Town of Palm Beach United Way partner agency since 2013. They provide affordable quality care to children whose parents otherwise could not maintain their job or go to school. Their programs are designed to meet a child’s academic, social, emotional and physical needs; through toddler, preschool, afterschool, teen, adult and family programs.
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.
Robin Martin has been a volunteer at the Town of Palm Beach United Way for 4 years. Robin serves on our Allocation Committee and our Board of Trustees. We sat down with Robin to ask him a few questions about volunteering at the Town of Palm Beach United Way and what it means to him.
There are some truly amazing individuals and organizations in our community. At the Town of Palm Beach United Way, we are proud to collaborate and serve as a partner alongside the people and companies doing great things.
Last week, we held our 72nd Annual Meeting at the Breakers Palm Beach. The event gave us the chance to say “THANK YOU” to the people who have the passion, expertise, and resources to get things done.
