FCC’s West Palm Beach campus was awarded with a $1,000 check to donate to a charity of its choice after winning a contest held between all eleven Florida Career College campuses. Together, students and faculty at the West Palm Beach campus chose to donate to Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, with a mission to strengthen and empower children battling critical illnesses.
At Florida Career College, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to transform their lives, and we are committed to helping them make it happen.” says Gregg Crowe, Executive Director at Florida Career College West Palm Beach Campus. “Our students face many life challenges, so donating to a charity who grants wishes to make lives better personally resonated with them as well as our organization.”
“The West Palm Beach campus is always looking to make a difference within our community. From distributing food to help those less fortunate to volunteering their time at a nursing home, West Palm Beach students and faculty are continuously striving to help those who are in need. We are honored to donate to Make-A-Wish Southern Florida and help grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.”
There were several non-profit organizations that the entire student body across all eleven Florida Career College campuses felt very passionate about. We are so proud of the dedication our students put into raising money for charity.
On January 10, the West Palm Beach campus presented the $1,000 check to Make-A-Wish Southern Florida.
