Clerk & Comptroller Workers Donate Thousands To Charities

On Monday, Dec. 14, members of Circuit Sound — the Palm Beach County Clerk & Comptroller’s Office employee carolers — performed holiday favorites while generating money for Leonardo Robilotta, a 2-year-old boy battling catastrophic epilepsy and cerebral palsy.

Robilotta was nominated for the 2015 “Season to Share” campaign by Clinics Can Help. Each year, Circuit Sound selects a Season to Share nominee to receive donations.

The Clerks for a Cause Charitable Giving Program was created to inspire employees to participate in philanthropic activities and give back to the community. Employees participate in beach cleanups; collections of books, school supplies, food and toys; and other fundraising activities. Through these initiatives, employees raised more than $50,000 in 2015 alone.

Of the money raised, more than $40,000 was collected as part of the Dress Down Friday program. Earlier this year, clerk employees participated in the United Way’s Hunger Heroes campaign, collecting 4,135 pounds of food for the Palm Beach County Food Bank.

“I am so proud of my wonderful employees. We believe that one small act of kindness can change the world, and we will continue to be a part of that change,” Clerk & Comptroller Sharon Bock said.
