It’s inevitable in Florida-you’re on your daily run, or driving to the beach when you find an injured wild animal. Helping these creatures requires a certain type of knowledge, which is where Busch Wildlife Sanctuary comes in. They help capture, heal, and rehabilitate these wild animals, whether that means retraining them to adopt their natural habits, or retaining them at the Sanctuary to help educate guests about how they can help wildlife.
There are many ways that we can share our gratitude for those who served our country post 9/11. One of them is assisting the transition from service to civilian work. The Wounded Veterans’ Relief Fund helps provide the financial assistance that veterans and their families need in times of economic need. This can range from helping veterans locate work to connecting them with legal services in the event of a possible eviction.
It can be hurtful to see a loved one affected by Alzheimer’s, and just as hard to know how to care for them. Alzheimer’s Community Care provides Alzheimer’s care and service centers, education and information to the public about Alzheimer’s, and an ID locator service that allows family members and rescue personnel to locate an individual that has wandered off through a location device attached on their wrist.
Palm Beach Gardens has multiple organizations ready to help in times of need, and BallenIsles is ready to help answer their call. The BallenIsles Charities Foundation is one of the many organizations that BallenIsles helps run. They also help host events that help others, such as the 5k Turkey Trot, and the Play For P.I.N.K. Golf Tournament, which benefitted the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. BallenIsles offers many ways for their residents to be involved in their community and help out-call or click here to learn more.
