DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Office Depot) — On Saturday, May 5, hundreds of Office Depot employees will gather in Delray Beach to beautify Pine Grove Elementary, as part of the South Florida based company’s new associate-driven philanthropy and volunteer initiative, “Depot Days of Service.” The City of Delray Beach Mayor Shelly Petrolia as well as other City staff, will join the cause at Pine Grove to support and thank the company for giving back to communities in need.
“We’re excited to welcome Office Depot employees, family and friends,” said Mayor Petrolia. “Depot Days of Service gives individuals an opportunity to make an impact toward something they are passionate about and lends to the City’s aim in bringing people together in service. I am proud to know we are a community that encourages civic engagement through collaboration to maximize efforts in giving back to those who need it most.”
In addition, Mayor Petrolia will address the volunteers during the lunch program alongside Pine Grove Elementary Principal Dr. Shauntay King and Palm Beach County School District Superintendent Dr. Donald Fennoy. The Delray Beach Police Department will be onsite with the P.A.R.T.Y. trailer to help ‘pump up’ the volunteers with music, popcorn and snow cones.
From April 28 through May 5, Office Depot volunteers will collaborate with a variety of organizations for a series of service projects in South Florida as well as major cities across North America. To help revitalize Pine Grove, Office Depot has partnered with the Palm Beach County Education Foundation and the Palm Beach County School District.
Office Depot plans to expand company-wide next year so that all associates can have the opportunity to engage directly with their local communities and establish stronger and further-reaching relationships in the future.
