28 Days Project attended the annual Family Assistance Resource Center (FARC) fundraiser in Orange, NJ, this month. The non-profit tactically provides emergency clothing, footwear, toiletries and other essential items to assist victims of fire, flooding, storm damage and other disasters in their time of need.
FARC’s mission is to not just provide those immediate material goods but to assist individuals and families in crisis to strengthen and empower them to live sustainable independent lives.
FARC doesn’t have deep pockets, but it’s clear that their founder Roger Hinton has a strong bond with both the fire victims who they help and the volunteers who devote their time to his organization.
A lesser known challenge in the non-profit world is the cost of logistics that are needed to collect, store and deliver the much-needed supplies. And it’s through Roger, as a connector, within the community through schools, local businesses, fire houses, partnering non-profits, and just generous, kind people that this help somehow always arrives.
28 Days provides products to FARC and has participated in a summer day of giving in Orange. We look forward to more projects with FARC in 2018. If you are interested in learning more about FARC, visit their website at http://www.farcnjsupport.com/.
