IRVINE, Calif.: FUTEK is proud to announce its 5th annual partnership with Families Forward for their upcoming Thanksgiving food drive. Each year Families Forward holds a Thanksgiving-themed grocery distribution so that Orange County families ensure that their children do not miss out on the Thanksgiving tradition.
The weekend before Thanksgiving parents and children come to the Families Forward headquarters in Irvine in order to pick up the ingredients necessary to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal. In Orange County 1 in 5 children are considered “food insecure.” Families Forward helps an average of 7,000 low-income individuals with food assistance each year.
FUTEK’s employees will help aid Families Forwards efforts by providing the organization by collecting 7 bins full of canned foods and goods before Thanksgiving, so that many Orange County families will be able to participate in the holiday.
