Community Outreach

Connecting With Our Community

The North County Men’s Shed is not only a great organization for the individual members, it also works to benefit other organizations in the area.  The following is the list of organizations that we are actively involved in supporting.

Cabana Colony PAL

Their mission at PAL is to build partnerships between youth, law enforcement, and the community through recreational and educational programs designed to encourage, enhance and develop good citizenship and improve the quality of life in the Cabana Colony area of Palm Beach County.  Their motto is “Every Kid needs a PAL”.

The North County Men’s Shed has participated in the construction of a set of backpack cubbie holes for the kids.

We also funded a Thansgiving Day dinner on the Wednesday preceeding Thanksgiving last year

Individual members have contributed snacks, drinks and other consumables for the kids.

Members have also donated such things as toothbrushes, dental floss, toothpaste, travel size shampoo, conditioner and soap.

Our Shed will continue to work with the Cabana Colony PAL to help with their future needs.

The Lord’s Place

The Lord’s Place transforms lives by providing solutions that break the cycle of homelessness for the most vulnerable and neglected in Palm Beach County.  This social impact agency has been serving men, women and families in our community for 40 years.  Their innovative, compassionate, and effective services are constantly evolving to end local homelessness for good.

The North County Men’s Shed has made a generous gift in support of their great work.
