Giving Back: Our Local Focus

Sklar Furnishings is always looking for meaningful ways to make the world a better place.We feel it is important to give back to our Community that we live and work in. We believe it is important to be a positive force in our own backyard.

Sklar has had a partnership with the National Forest Foundation since we opened. We have planted over 6000 trees in the Forests of North Florida. Recently we met a local organization that gives back to our Community called Community Greening.We like that they are in our backyard and we can see the difference our support will make!

Community Greening

Since our business consumes a lot of wood, we’ve always focused on ways to offset that demand. Since 2016, Community Greening has been planting many types of trees in South Florida, in public and private spaces. We love how they match trees to the needs of communities, planting the right tree in the right place.

In addition to planting trees to beautify and improve neighborhoods, Community Greening has planted 3 urban orchards with tropical fruit trees, to address healthier eating and the importance of environmental stewardship. These community resources provide food, shade, and an excellent introduction to growing food.

Community Greening works on many projects in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and surrounding cities, allowing us to focus our investment in our own backyard. They hire local youth to work in Tree Teams where they work on planting trees and improving neighbourhoods, learn about sustainability, and get work experience.

As new partners, we will donate a tree to Community Greening with each purchase of a wood piece to help them continue their mission of making our community stronger, healthier, and greener!

BHH distributes more than 80,000 pantry bags each year at five Palm Beach County locations and serves over 90,000 hot meals annually, six days per week.

And to continue our food drives with Boca Helping Hands. After all, we’re blessed to be here and want to ensure everyone has the same feeling!
