Kaufman Lynn Construction says it has recently completed a back-to-school backpack drive for Florence Fuller Child Development Centers (FFCDC), by handing out backpacks filled with school supplies for this academic year for three classes of students.
The backpack drive is an annual effort from the Boca Raton-based contractor’s associates and subcontractors, which it corporately matches.
“It is because of dedicated community supporters like Kaufman Lynn Construction that we are able to fulfill the supply needs for the nearly 850 children we serve at Florence Fuller to ensure a great start to the new school year,” said Diane Shawcross, FFDC’s director of advancement.
FFCDC is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of children from economically challenged families, with the goal of preparing children for a lifetime commitment to learning, and empowering their families to build a brighter future.
“Kaufman Lynn Construction is proud to be long-time supporters of the Florence Fuller Child Development Centers which continually assist children in need,” said president and CEO Michael Kaufman. “More than simply daycare centers, Florence Fuller truly invests in the children they serve by inspiring them to make local and global differences. Nothing compares to the heartwarming smiles and hugs these children offer when we visit.”
The backpack drive was organized through the company’s Positive Workplace Committee. The mission of the internal committee is to create and execute events that promote associate engagement, create a better sense of family among the Kaufman Lynn Construction team, and provide opportunities for involvement and caring within the community.
