Community Impact Corner
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
In this newest section of our newsletter, we plan to spotlight the good deeds that our clients are doing in their local communities.
JARC Florida (formerly Jewish Association of Residential Care) in Boca Raton, provides group homes, apartments and vocational training for adults with intellectual and development disabilities.
When Sachs Sax Caplan, a Boca Raton-based law firm, decided to go digital in mid-2021, it knew it would first need to safely dispose of all print materials, and the safest way to do so was shredding them.
Peter Sachs, attorney and founding partner of the law firm, also felt there was a need for employment for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. He presented the idea to the organization about creating a shredding department within one of JARC’s vocational training programs.
After a trial period, JARC recently launched its “Shred It and Forget It” program. To date the program has shredded more than 4000 lbs. of documents. JARC encourages other local businesses to participate in this partnership and help make a difference in the lives of these adults living with disabilities.
We applaud Sachs Sax Caplan for their vision, compassion, and commitment to making an impact in their community.
