Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) educational toys will enrich the classroom experience
BOCA RATON, Fla. (December 26, 2018) – Grover Corlew, a South Florida-based real estate investment management group, has donated Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) educational toys to Florence Fuller Child Development Centers. The toys will enrich the classroom experience for underserved children.
“Florence Fuller Child Development Centers is an outstanding organization committed to making a difference in the lives of children who need it most. We appreciate their commitment to learning and to empowering their families to build a brighter future through education,” said Partner Anuj Grover. “We believe, along with Florence Fuller Child Development Centers, that every child should have a chance to learn, grow and experience success in school and life regardless of their ability to pay. They have many robust programs that support young children and their families in a very nurturing way.”
Approximately 25 percent of Palm Beach County families are living at the poverty level in an extremely affluent area. The parents who come to Florence Fuller Child Development Centers want a better life for their children but lack the time and resources to make those dreams a reality.
“These families depend on us to provide the necessary skills and tools to help their children stay on par with their more affluent peers,” said Ellyn Okrent, CEO of Florence Fuller Child Development Centers. “STEAM toys offer children hands-on experiences with science, technology, engineering, arts and math at an early age. The toys build on a child’s natural curiosity and desire to build, create and investigate.”
Funding provided by Grover Corlew and other private donors helps fund programs and purchase STEAM items like Snap Circuit kits, construction sets with spinning gears, color-coded clocks with hour and minute functions, science kits, geometry sets and waffle building blocks.
“We realize that we can’t build strong communities without supporting the people who live and work in them,” said Partner Mark Corlew. “As real estate investors and managers we understand that a strong foundation is fundamental to any success and we were particularly drawn to this organization because of their tireless work creating a foundation for lifelong success in each child who walks through their doors. We look forward to devoting more time and resources to Florence Fuller Child Development Centers in the future.”
Grover Corlew owns and manages office buildings throughout Palm Beach and Broward counties and has been intricately involved in the revitalization efforts in cities in both counties and beyond.
