Local Businesses Join Together To Support Earth Day And The Community
In an effort to promote early childhood literacy and raise awareness about caring for the community in honor of Earth Day, seven Parkland and Coral Springs businesses supported publisher Nina Charles LLC in donating one book for every Kindergarten and preschool child in Park Trails, Heron Heights and Riverglades elementary schools.
Local publisher of the award winning Pumpkinheads® series, Nina Charles LLC, with the support of seven community minded companies located in Parkland and Coral Springs, FL, donated one award winning book, Carmin Cares, to every Kindergarten and preschool child enrolled in the three Parkland, FL elementary schools: Park Trails, Heron Heights, and Riverglades.
Carmin Cares is the engaging story about how a little girl gets gum stuck on her shoe and decides something has to be done about the mess on the playground. Through lovable characters and easy to follow rhymes, Carmin Cares teaches young children to take responsibility for their world, proving that even small hands can make a big difference!
The seven sponsors of the book donation also believe that they can make a difference in their community. The sponsors of the book donation are: Budget Blinds, Sherry and Steven Gottlieb of RE/MAX, Richard H. Gaines, Esq. of Greenspoon Marder, P.A., British Swim School, Mini-Mouths Dentistry, SHOWTIME Performing Arts Theatre, and Body Heat Tanning.

British Swim School has been dedicated to teaching water survival for over 30 years. Their methods are based on teaching beginners of all age groups that the ability to float on their back is the most important water survival skill of all. This enables all swimmers to rest, breath and call for help, thus alleviating the “silent” danger of floating face down. Swim lessons are offered to infants starting from 3 months old up through adults. British Swim School is an elite swimming program that functions year round with two locations in Coral Springs as well as many locations throughout the tri-county region.
