Over 20 NAI/Merin Hunter Codman employees, family and friends volunteered on Saturday at the Urban League of Palm Beach County’s Thanksgiving Basket Giveaway for the third consecutive year. The Urban League of Palm Beach County has been at the forefront of youth, education, economic, community and health empowerment for the past 38 years. As the leading provider of comprehensive family services serves over 16,000 clients annually. The majority of the youth and families they see on a daily basis are living at or below the federal poverty line and in underserved and challenged areas in our community. They live in neighborhoods with low high school graduation rates, high unemployment and underemployment, high crime rates and one-parent households. The Urban League addresses these challenges by providing self-reliance programs that move families and individuals into the economic mainstream through education, self-improvement and capacity building.
Since its inception, the ULPBC has worked diligently in the community offering programs and services to the underserved in Palm Beach County as well as acting as a public policy advocate for their rights. The ULPBC was formed with the purpose to enable disadvantaged minorities to secure economic self-reliance through education, housing and employment. The organization has offered stellar programs in the areas of housing counseling, youth development and education, community development and crime prevention and intervention.
Our volunteers had a great time organizing and distributing all of the ingredients and food items that the families would need to have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday. In addition to volunteering time at the event, CEO Jordan Paul helped collect over $4,300 dollars in donations from trusted vendors and clients. We’re so thankful to have been a part of such a great community building event and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
Florida Commerce Park welcomes a new week of promise after a busy couple days of exciting events. On Thursday, November 12th, over 30 local government workers, dignitaries, politicians, industry leaders, and business owners attended the Ground Breaking Ceremony of the 100-acre industrial park. The site breaths new life into Indiantown as one of the largest industrial developments undertaken in Martin County. The park is fast-tracked with “permit-ready parcels” so businesses can begin vertical development immediately following initial infrastructure work.
On Friday, November 13th, over 20 local commercial real estate brokers gathered for a property tour of the site, followed by lunch and shooting at the South Florida Shooting Club. Brokers are excited at the possibility of the multiple uses approved at Florida Commerce Park, which far surpasses what other local industrial sites are approved for.
