2017 is Sklar’s 15th anniversary, and we’re celebrating by giving back to the community that has given us so much. For every month of the year, our team has chosen one local charity that we’ll be supporting through donations, fundraising, and boosting awareness of their great work. These organizations create opportunities, lend a hand to people in hardship, and help make Boca Raton an even better place to live.
Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County
For the month of April, Sklar is proudly supporting Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County. Habitat for Humanity builds homes for families in need, giving them the stability of a permanent address and the sense of pride that comes with home ownership. Since 1991, Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County has built homes for over 120 area families, at zero interest financing. Freed from the stresses of insecure housing, parents and their children can focus on work and school instead, creating a cycle of achievement.
Habitat for Humanity is a cause that Sklar has been involved with since the store opened in 2002. Our staff have personally worked on builds, and together we have raised a significant amount of money to help house the vulnerable. In fact, we are proud to announce that our third donated home is currently under construction, and we are committed to sponsoring a total of six. Habitat for Humanity are always grateful for gifts of money, furniture and home goods; visit www.habitatsouthpalmbeach.org to donate or register as a volunteer.
