Ferrara Candy Company's Engagement Council Gives Back with a Back To School Opportunity
Ferrara believes in sharing goodness in every bite, with one of its Engagement Council Pillars being Giving Back to the Community. The group contacted Bellwood's school district and asked if any families needed support for their children, of which the response was filled with excitement and appreciation. After receiving a list of needs from the school for students in grades kindergarten through sixth, the Council pulled $5,000 from its fund to purchase 50 backpacks as well as all the supplies to fill each one. Team members stepped away from their daily work to fill the bags, which were then delivered to the school a few days later.
