FSR is celebrating 10 years of partnership with its local United Way for the “Backpacks 4 Kids” program.
For a decade now, the Passaic, NJ-based AV manufacturer has teamed up with other local businesses and the United Way of Passaic County to donate and fill backpacks with essential school supplies for more than 900 students in need. This is the largest initiative of its kind in the region.
“Looking back now, it’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since we first started participating in this extremely important program,” Jan Sandri, FSR’s president, said in a prepared statement.
“FSR has always been and remains an active member of the Passaic County community and our participation in this outstanding program is just one example of our local commitment. We are truly honored to be able to help properly prepare our local kids for the new school year.”
“It is our belief that every child, no matter their background, can thrive if they have the proper tools to support their educational goals,” added Yvonne Zuidema, CEO/President of the United Way of Passaic County.
“Education is crucial if our children are going to reach their life’s goals and objectives; how else can they create successful careers for themselves? With the contributions and generous support of our local residents and businesses, such as Jan Sandri and her team at FSR, we are able to start developing today the community leaders of tomorrow.”
