WEST PALM BEACH, FLA (August 19, 2019)
– A group of City of West Palm Beach employees wanted to give back to the community they serve by making sure West Palm Beach students began the school year on the right foot. On the first week of school, they donated numerous school supply items including crayons, markers, pencils, glue, pens and more to students and teachers at Roosevelt Elementary School located on 15th
St. in West Palm Beach.
“I am honored and humbled by the kindness and generosity of City of West Palm Beach employees,” said West Palm Beach Mayor Keith A. James. “This sort of caring for our children, our community, and our neighborhoods serves as an inspiration, and I am proud these employees represent our City. We wish all West Palm Beach students a happy, healthy and successful school year!”
Employees at the City’s Municipal Complex stepped up and donated supplies for students. The employees work in Departments of Public Utilities, Public Works, Parks and Recreation, and Support Services.
“The response and support for the supply drive was overwhelming,” said Dave Persad, the City’s Fleet Superintendent. “We gathered the supplies and contacted the school, where everyone was grateful for the supplies.”
