Celebrating 20 Years of Making a Difference in our Community
At Sklar Furnishings, one of our goals is to be good neighbors and positively impact the community we live and work in while being good stewards to the planet. This year marks our 20th Anniversary in our location and to celebrate and we have joined hands with Cereal4All – a youth-run NGO based in Boca Raton, founded by 14-year-old twin brothers Jett and Luke Justin – in organizing a Cereal Drive for November.
Luke Justin says, “We aspire to live in a world where every child and family has everyday access to breakfast food in their home. We want to be part of the fight against hunger.” After volunteering with their parents at Boca Helping Hands, Jett and Luke organized their first cereal drive in schools when they were just eight. The brothers have since extended Cereal4All, to several schools including Florida Atlantic University.
Cereal is one of the most favored and expensive items in any food pantry. Easy to source and nutritious, they are an ideal breakfast choice. Moreover, it is a perfect donation because it’s non-perishable and provides whole grains and essential nutrients lacking in many at-risk households and are frequently in short supply at food banks.
We believe in giving back to our communities and encourage people who reside in our neighborhoods to bring Cereal to our showroom for drop-off this month. Many people attending food banks are going through challenging times and might be hesitant to ask for assistance. We want to be part of the fight against food insecurity.
