The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office recently donated 15,089 pounds of food to Extended Hands Community Outreach of West Palm Beach.
Donations were collected as part of the office’s 17th annual Holiday Food Drive during the month of November. The special food-raising campaign is administered by the employees of the office. Each canned good item goes directly to Extended Hands, which provides food, clothing and other basic necessities to families living in the West Palm Beach area.
“I am extremely proud of this year’s efforts by our generous employees,” Property Appraiser Gary Nikolits said. “It’s a privilege to be able to deliver this food that will serve the needs of our neighbors in West Palm Beach and the surrounding area.”
The Property Appraiser’s Office encourages and supports employee community service involvement throughout Palm Beach County. Its employees are dedicated to the responsibility of giving back to the community.
“The support of the Property Appraiser’s Office has been overwhelming through the years,” said Coeliah Bryson, director of Extended Hands. “There is such a need in our community. This donation will carry us through the year.”
