West Palm Beach, Fla. – State Farm has announced a $60,000 grant to Florida chapters of Junior Achievement. Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast received a $5,000 portion of the grant.
State Farm representative Jose Soto, Corporate Responsibility Analyst, was schedule to present a check to Claudia Kirk Barto, President of Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast, at Cholee Lake Elementary in Greenacres in March, but COVID-19 didn’t allow that to happen.
“We are grateful to State Farm for this grant because it helps make what we do possible,” said Barto. “Our K-12 programs on work-readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy are offered to schools and students free of charge because of grants like this and State Farm grants from previous years.”
