Guatemalan Maya Center in Lake Worth Beach needs help for Christmas.

This LOCAL community news is published in this week’s LOCAL Lake Worth Herald. Do you have community news you would like to share? At the end of this blog post today is how to contact the editor at the LOCAL community Herald.

Here is the news about the Guatemalan Maya Center:

It’s that time of year again where we can share the joy of the holidays by providing for our children who need it the most.

The director, assistant director, staff and volunteers of the Guatemalan Maya Center are urgently requesting a generous donation in response to the growing community’s need.

The Center has had an increased request from mothers having access to enough holiday food and age appropriate toys for their children. This increase has doubled from last year.

No mother wants to be faced with the devastating prospect of having little or nothing being on the holiday table. No mother ever wants to be in the position of having to dry a child’s tears because their child thought they were not good enough for Santa to come. No one wants to know they could have helped but didn’t.

Donations may be in the form of toys, gift cards, and/or tax deductible monetary contribution made payable to the Guatemalan Maya Center. All direct contributions will be used to continue the good works of the center for hopefully another 30 years.

For more information contact Lucia Barnes at the Guatemalan Maya Center. The Center is located at 430 North G Street in Lake Worth Beach and is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., phone 561-547-0085.

A recent press release issued by the City’s public information officer (PIO):

Lake Worth Beach — In-Rel Properties, Inc., a long-term Lake Worth Beach resident has relocated its offices to downtown. This real estate investment firm recently purchased and renovated the former Chase Bank Building at 200 Lake Avenue, a two-story structure comprised of approximately twelve thousand square feet.

According to a company spokesperson:

“In-Rel has spent the last two years searching for new headquarter offices. Concerned by the possibility of leaving this wonderful area, we were elated to find this opportunity to remain in Lake Worth Beach. We brought new life to a significant downtown property, contributed towards preserving the local vibe, and secured facilities that will support our growth for years to come.”

In-Rel has now restored the building’s mid-century modern design, a subtle blend of 1950’s Art Deco and futuristic styles. The project preserved downtown’s culture, showing respect for the artistic community, while repurposing the property for new commercial uses. The avant-garde architecture is highly flexible. The interior offers generous open floor plates and high ceilings, making it easy to build out creative, modern, and functional spaces.

The building is situated between Lake Avenue and Lucerne Avenue, just west of the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge. It is in the heart of downtown Lake Worth Beach and within minutes of the Palm Beach Island communities across the bridge. This locale is ideal for a variety of office and retail tenants, including medical, wealth management, boutique law firm, wellness, art gallery, gourmet food market, and restaurant uses.

In-Rel now occupies the building’s top floor and has made up to six thousand square feet on the ground floor available for lease. A quick visit to In-Rel’s offices reveals the exciting possibilities for the use of the available space.
