The Learning Resource Center offices sparkle, inside and out!
Sixteen enthusiastic Publix employees worked to improve the appearance and conditions at LRC and its storage space on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, a day designated as “Publix Serves Day”.

From 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., the Corporate Accounting Department volunteers cleaned gutters, scrubbed siding, painted needed areas, installed shelving, purged and organized boxes of documents and removed years of dust and debris. LRC’s mini-proposal for help was selected by Publix, and the magic was created by these hardworking individuals!
Next time you’re on South Florida Avenue and passing by the LRC office, drive slowly to take a look at the fruit of their labor! Please, also, thank Publix employees for their priceless gifts to the community that they give in so many ways.

Did you know that the Learning Resource Center offers numerous volunteer opportunities throughout the year, annually?
We’re looking for people with a will to help, an interest in education, good customer services skills, and the ability to support our vision of providing high quality, customized academic opportunities to help students reach their maximum learning potential.
If you match these qualifications and are seeking community service hours, looking to assist local students or desiring for a meaningful way to make use of spare time, then please don’t hesitate to contact us about the opportunities below!
