WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (December 10, 2018) – Nearly 100 seniors across Palm Beach County received a gift of holiday cheer this season thanks to the generosity of employees with the Clerk & Comptroller’s office.
Continuing with the Clerk’s strong belief in a culture of giving to our community, the Clerk’s team decorated 86 tabletop trees as part of their annual holiday festival held on Nov. 20. The trees were hand decorated by Clerk employees, and each one had its own unique design. Themes included tropical arrangements, patriotic displays and candy-inspired designs.
The trees were donated to MorseLife, where they were distributed to seniors participating in the organization’s program.
“Our team has a proud tradition of supporting local nonprofits throughout Palm Beach County, whether it is through charitable donations or volunteer time,” said Clerk & Comptroller Sharon R. Bock, Esq. “It is my sincerest hope that these beautiful trees bring great happiness and cheer this holiday season.”
Vesna Poirier, MorseLife’s Director of Patient Services, was grateful.
“Everyone is excited about the trees,” Poirier said. “They couldn’t believe the amount of work and love that went into each and every single one of them.”
The trees are just one of the many ways the Clerk’s office gives back to the community.
Clerk employees raised $60,519 for local nonprofits and college scholarships last year through the office’s Clerks for a Cause program. Visit mypalmbeachclerk.com/charitable-giving-programs to learn more.
