Shula Burger has scored a win among the Delray Beach community for its tasty burgers, and now it can do the same for an area charity.
At a recent grand opening event on July 10, the Shula Burger team promised 5 percent of its proceeds for the day to Achievement Centers for Children & Families. While the amount raised would have been a welcome donation, the Shula Burger team decided they could do better and upped the amount to $1,000.
“We just wanted to give more,” said Carrie LaNoce, owner of the Delray Beach Shula Burger location. “This is a cause that is near and dear to us, and we wanted to support the center’s mission and help local families.”
LaNoce and her Shula Burger team will present the check at the center, 555 Northwest 4th Street, Delray Beach, on Tuesday, July 30, at 10 a.m.
The donation will allow the center to offer special programs geared toward children of all ages, focusing on each age group’s academic achievement and success. The center provides a way for children to receive extra academic attention and support while their parents are working or attending school. Comprehensive services include affordable childcare, after school and extended day programs, a teen program, adult education and community outreach services.
“The Achievement Center for Children & Families makes a difference in the Delray community, and as a part of that same community, we are thrilled to support their goals,” LaNoce said.
