West Palm Beach, Fla. – Anne M.

All proceeds were donated to assist the food bank with replenishing supplies lost during Hurricane Irma.
“Our employees recognized the increased need in our County following Hurricane Irma and wanted to assist,” said Gannon. “We are here to serve the people of Palm Beach County and this donation was another way for us to serve.”
Every two years, employees of the Tax Collector’s Office vote on charities to support through employee-funded activities.
