Certified Techs Install Child Safety Seats Everyday
The Martin County Tax Collector’s office makes available a program for the inspections and installation of child safety seats. Seats have been purchased from funds that have been raised by the staff of the office by donating a $1 on dress casual day and through donations from local businesses, service organizations and customers. We have 4 certified staff members who will inspect and install your seat and replace it should it not meet safety requirements. For a small donation our certified staff will provide and properly install a safety seat if you do not have one. In situations of financial hardship a free seat will be provided.

Seuss – A – Bration
Wearing a red and white striped stovepipe hat in observance of Dr. Seuss’s 108th birthday, Ruth Pietruszewski, Martin County Tax Collector, read a Dr. Suess book to a class of four and five year olds. Reading books to children is one of the most important things you can do to promote literacy development, give youngsters a boost in their academic potential, encourage their creativity skills, and build a vivid imagination. “Dr. Seuss readers teach children that reading is fun,” commented Ruth Pietruszewski, and to quote Dr Suess, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
Breast Cancer Awareness
Ruth and her staff support Breast Cancer in the Month of October
Martin County Tax Collector, Ruth Pietruszewski, and her staff want to touch lives in the local community and help make a difference. The 2011 Pink Tie Friends calendar will be available at Martin County Tax Collector’s offices for a donation of $10. The twelve calendar girls honored are all cancer survivors.
All the proceeds from this calendar provide financial assistance to men and women who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer and are either uninsured or underinsured. The funds raised are distributed locally to Treasure Coast area patients.
