The underlying (or as in big business, the underlying effect is known as the bottom-line or the profit to be accrued annually) resource needed to boost the many segments of the educational process such as STEM, the Arts and crafts, music, physical education, etc. is the lack of congress to completely and unequivocally do not understand that investing in education is (not a nice frill that the rich and powerful can obtain for their youths) but is the only salvation left for a downing in an illiterate, slipping into darkness society via ignorance for a world (especially in the US government, where some members of congress seem to want to defund our most valuable assets and investments of students, teachers and quality schools).
Along the Treasure Coast of beautiful Florida, there are citizens that are constantly doing their part to ensure a solid and valid education for all children and illiterate adults too. Literacy Coalitions as in Palm Beach County and Education Foundations are meeting the challenge of supplementing their counties' school districts such as Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and parts of Palm Beach County. Programs such as educational license plates (License2Learn) now have another support effort, known as “SHRED-4-ED”.
The “SHRED-4-ED” (Education) invites the public to “turn their trash into cash” as the Courtyard Shops at Wellington launches its “Shred-4-Ed” program to support community education at area schools by donating funds for each container brought to free monthly shredding sessions, held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the center parking lot on the last Saturday of each month, specifically August 31st, September 28th and October 26th.
“We are very excited to be able to provide an opportunity to raise much-needed funds for local schools,” said Jeff Purisch, Property Manager of Courtyard Shops at Wellington, a Federal Realty Investment Trust property. “With the school year now just getting underway and knowing the vital need to support community education, it is inspiring to have the support from both Courtyard merchants as well as business, education and community organizations embracing this program and helping to get the word out.”
Area residents and businesses can use this program to discard unwanted clutter and gain peace of mind by safely disposing of personal documents, credit card offers, receipts, check stubs, any other material with sensitive data, all at no charge. In appreciation, each supporter of community education will receive special offers, and other promotional items provided by Courtyard Shops at Wellington’s diverse collection of more than 30 stores and restaurants that are featuring special sales, samplings, demos, discounts, and more during the program session days.
So, Palm Beach County prepares to shred for education.
Conveniently located at 13860 Wellington Trace in Wellington at the corner of Wellington Trace and Greenview Shores Blvd, the Courtyard Shops at Wellington is a retail destination with more than 30 shops and restaurants including Publix, Kontiki, Van Dell Jewelers, Eyes of Wellington, Lindburgers Restaurant, Tijuana Flats and Sam Jon’s.
