FR CARES PROGRAM
Our Factory Reproductions team strongly believes in being a positive force in the world, especially in the communities where we work and live. We are proud to announce that our program FR CARES has wrapped up 2021 with contributions made to three organizations that are near and dear to our hearts.
Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino (“FARSB”) began in April 1980 distributing about 10,000 pounds of food per month and partnering with about 20 local nonprofit agencies. Today, FARSB distributes over 2 million pounds of food per month and partners with over 250 local nonprofit partners. They work persistently toward their mission of alleviating hunger in the Inland Empire.
Second Harvest is focused on providing the most basic of needs – nutritious food. Second Harvest provides consistent access to nutritious food to those in need in the community, specifically to the most vulnerable among them through the Child Hunger Strategy, including Permanent and Mobile School Pantries, after-school programs, College Pantries, and our Senior Grocery Program.
The Orangewood staff works one-on-one with youth in four critical areas: health & wellness, housing, life skills & employment, and education. The goal is to help them identify their own strengths, attributes, and aptitudes to empower them to overcome their challenges and reach their greatest potential. They meet a broad array of needs: from groceries and a hot meal, to transitional housing, to life skills workshops and employment leads, and scholarships for college and graduate school.
