At NAI/Merin Hunter Codman, Inc. we take pride in supporting the communities that we live and do business in. We’re writing today to ask for YOU to be a part of our next community service project.

Red Apple Supplies was launched in 2016 and now supports 42 schools where 95% and higher of students come from low-income families and struggle to afford essential school supplies. Teachers shop for free supplies, all of which are purchased/donated by the community.
The Education Foundation facilitates student achievement by supporting high-quality public education through partnerships, grants, events, and public awareness. They work collaboratively with the School District of Palm Beach County and the community to build and support these efforts so that every student has the opportunity to achieve their highest potential.
This cause is near to our heart as we are a proud supporter of the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County including their signature program, Red Apple Supplies. Our CEO, Jordan Paul is a Board Member for the Foundation and Merin Hunter Codman helped launch Red Apple Supplies by identifying the store’s initial site and negotiating their lease.
Our MHC REAL Leaders will be volunteering at the store in July and we’re excited to be able to double our efforts by donating supplies as well. With your help, we can ensure that more children reach their full potential by providing the tools they need to succeed.
Please read the full flyer which outlines which items are needed. We hope to see you in our office real soon with your donations. We will be waiting with a smile and a complimentary cup of coffee.
No time to shop and drop off? No problem! Purchase something from our Red Apple Supplies Amazon wish-list and it will be sent directly to our office!
