Irvine Company Senior Vice President Michael Le Blanc recently presented Families Forward with a check for funds raised by Irvine Company employees.
Corporate and Apartment Community employees used their 2008 holiday get-togethers as opportunities to raise much-needed financial assistance for the Irvine-based non-profit organization, which provides temporary shelter, counseling, food and other vital services to families experiencing difficult times.
The Apartment Communities fundraiser netted more than $7,100, while the Corporate employee gathering raised $4,400. Le Blanc presented the check for the Corporate amount to Families Forward Executive Director Margie Wakeham. Apartment Communities is presenting its contributions to the organization separately.
The Irvine Company is a long-time supporter of Families Forward. You can learn more about the organization and opportunities to help at www.families-forward.org, or by calling 949-552-2727.
