Pushed by Hurricane Wilma in 2005 to consider hunger and poverty issues in our area, Gary Peters became a member of the Board of Directors of Boca Helping Hands, and then President of the Board shortly thereafter.  Under his guidance and oversight, Boca Helping Hands has expanded its programs, and in 2010, moved into a brand new, 15,000 square foot facility.  The Remillard Family Resource Center, home to Boca Helping Hands has truly become the crown jewel in the social service network in South Palm Beach County.
