$75,000 Anonymous Donation Takes Boca Helping Hands Over the Million Dollar Mark This generous gift marks the celebrated achievement of the $1 Million Milestone as the Capital Campaign balance is currently over $1.1 Million.

“This gift is more evidence of the community’s level of support for Boca Helping Hands and the new building project,” said Gary Peters, head of the Capital Campaign. “Donors and business leaders are making it clear that they believe in our vision for using this facility to improve the lives of the low-income and homeless population in Boca Raton for the betterment of the community.”

The goal of Boca Helping Hands is to provide dedicated and compassionate service designed to help people in need gain independence by fostering dignity, self-respect and self-esteem.

“The construction of our new center will allow us to improve and expand the services that we currently offer,” said Boca Helping Hands Executive Director Linda Gove. “Our goal is to provide resources that positively impact the lives of children and families in need, and with a new combined facility it will make it much easier for families to benefit from our services.”

The new facility will consolidate all of the services currently provided through multiple outlets into a single location featuring a cafeteria, marketplace, warehouse center, administrative offices, and job assistance program facilitation. The new facility will also include the expansion of our children’s services as well as the initiation of a health and wellness program that will provide free medical treatment to the underserved population in the community.
