“Giving back to the community is ingrained in our culture and reflected in the volunteer work of club members and associates alike,” said Matthew Linderman, CCM, President, COO and General Manager of Boca West Country Club. “All of us here are part of the Boca West family and ‘We Care’ deeply about the community in which we live and work.”
Boca West’s history in giving back to the community also includes Boca West Children’s Foundation, which was launched in 2010, and came about as a desire by the thousands of volunteers from the Boca West Country Club to give back to children in Palm Beach County, the Boca Raton Tribune reported. The Foundation’s mission is to identify and fund projects to assist children and their families in need in the area. Since its inception, the Foundation has granted more than $18 million for specific programs for more than 30 charities.
