Last Thanksgiving, Fence Factory had the honor or participating as a sponsor for Project Understanding, an organization whose goal is to transform lives and the community through justice, mercy and compassion.
After contacting Project Understanding, we hear of a local family, the Ortegas, who needed financial support. Project Understanding first became aware of the family’s needs while the Ortega’s daughter was attending their Tutoring Center at EP Foster Elementary School. We reached out to the school’s Tutoring Coordinator, Maria Gonzalez, and after much discussion were able to assist the Ortega family so that they were able to enjoy their Christmas.
With Easter right around the corner, people often take this time to reflect and understand what they value most in life. Times like this helps us understand who we are and what we can do to help make changes. Charles Dickens once said, “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” We at Fence Factory, a leading fence supplies store believe that there is nothing more important than a thriving community, and for a thriving community we must be willing to help each other out when times are rough.
To instill community, we need to instill hope, a lending hand. “He who has hope has everything,” – Arabian proverb.
