NAI/Merin Hunter Codman is very excited to share the news that Palm Beach County’s first Red Apple Supply Store will open soon on Florida Avenue in West Palm Beach! The store will provide free school supplies to teachers in Title 1 (the neediest) schools in Palm Beach County, reducing the need for teachers and educators to pay out of pocket to ensure their classrooms and students have the necessary supplies to succeed.
NAI/Merin Hunter Codman played a significant role in helping to build the store. Ryan Dinsdale, David Knott, and Jordan Paul (who is also a Board Member of the Education Foundation) worked to identify and tour a variety of sites to find the right one. They also worked with the Foundation to help them negotiate the 1,425 SF lease. And to top it off, the brokers and firm donated their share of the commission to help the Foundation get the best economic deal possible.
The store is an initiative of the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, a privately funded non-profit organization dedicated to bridging funding gaps within the School District of Palm Beach County.
Giving back to our community is a core value for us at NAI/Merin Hunter Codman. We are excited about the potential of the Red Apple Supply Store. We appreciate having the opportunity to assist the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County and look forward to its success!
