The donations from the South Florida community came from a fundraiser that Hoffman’s Chocolates, a BBX Capital Company, held from July 14 through July 31 at its stores in Greenacres, Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens, Delray Beach, and Plantation. Customers who donated $5.00 towards a backpack initiative received a coupon for a Free Hoffman’s Chocolates ice cream sundae valid through September 30. The delicious sundae consists of 2 scoops of ice cream, 2 toppings, whipped cream, and a cherry on top.

BBX Capital Employees participated in a day of donating and distributing backpacks to non-profit organizations who help local children in need.
