Farrow continues tradition of giving back to communities! - Donations to food-banks and children’s charities total $72,500
December 03, 2013
Farrow today announces donations of $72,500 dollars to food-banks in locations where Farrow has offices and employees, as well as three children’s charities, to which the organization has been linked recently.
Rick Farrow, Chairman and C.E.O., together with his brother John, Vice-Chairman, announced the annual charitable donations to local foodbanks company-wide totaling over $70,000.
“We’ve had another successful year, better than we anticipated, and as such, would like to help the communities in which our employees live and work. Since my father’s time we’ve helped food-banks and other community support organizations in the Windsor area; organizations like the Goodfellows. More recently, it has become a company-wide tradition - this is now the fourth year in which we’ve donated to food-banks in cities across North America, which started as part of our 100th Anniversary celebrations. This year, we’ve added three charities which expand that concept – Children of Hope Uganda, Harmony in Action, and the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society are three organizations which do tremendous work for children in their respective communities. John and I are pleased that the success of our organization allows us to think of others at this time of year.”
The recipient organizations were selected based on input from local area managers, employees and clients, and are listed on the page following.
