FSR GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Manufacturer’s Participation in United Way’s “Backpacks for Kids” Program Helps Local Children Prepare for a Successful School Experience
Woodland Park, NJ (September 8, 2010) -- FSR, a Passaic County-based manufacturer, has demonstrated its commitment to the community by participating in United Way of Passaic County’s “Backpacks for Kids”, a program that collects supplies for children in Passaic County whose families cannot afford to purchase them. The objective of “Backpacks for Kids” is to send students back to school with the tools they need to succeed. FSR donated 60 backpacks, several dozen composition pads, crayon boxes and erasers.
“We wouldn’t have the success that we achieved without companies like FSR becoming involved and making it happen,” acknowledged Yvonne Zuidema, president and chief professional officer of United Way of Passaic County. “Thanks to Jan Sandri and other business leaders in the community we surpassed this year’s goal and last year’s numbers. We are grateful to them for stepping up to support our cause.”
“FSR believes in giving back to the community,” said Jan Sandri, FSR’s president. “We are grateful to have achieved success as a Passaic County business, and can’t think of a better way of expressing our appreciation than helping our kids start school with proper supplies.”
