August 1, 2019 – The Palm Beach Gardens Police & Fire Rescue Foundation is showing their support for local students. The foundation awarded scholarships to seven family members of police and fire personnel. Each $2,500 scholarship will be used toward the student’s college tuition. The scholarships were made possible by Penny and Herb Wender of Palm Beach Gardens.
The foundation also presented a $10,000 check to Suits for Seniors. The nonprofit organization helps at-risk high school seniors prepare for college and careers. The program includes mentoring sessions, communication skills development, leadership exercises, and team building experiences. The Palm Beach Gardens Police & Fire Rescue Foundation’s donation will also help to provide personally tailored suits for young men in the program.
