GROW Month 2014 Success

GROW Month has come to an end this year, but not without the valued success of your wonderful support. Every year we look to increase the awareness of the GROW program in hopes that others will be inspired to help provide resources and opportunities for the families and workers in Mexico and Ecuador.

Thanks to your words of encouragement and your dedication to the GROW program, we will be able to continue providing for those in need. The GROW fund will maintain its efforts to keep children in schools, create opportunities for volunteers, set up health and dental clinics, develop clean water programs, and so much more.

As we head into October we would like to remind everyone to share GROW stories with your customers. Your community will value your time and commitment to social responsibility.

Again, thank you for another terrific GROW Month.
