Our Employees Proudly Served in the Name of Dr. King
January 23, 2021
From refreshing the grounds around a historic landmark to providing food and necessities to dozens of homeless people, the employees at FE Small Business Finance stepped up to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this week.
- In San Diego, we took part in the MLK Day of Interfaith Service at Balboa Park’s Marston House. We joined hundreds of volunteers at the historic home, which became a museum in 1987, to rake leaves and pick up brush, clearing the way for flowers and trees to be planted.
- In Riverside, we distributed totes for 50 homeless people. The bags included a meal, snacks, warm clothing, a first-aid kit and lots of toiletries like combs, soap and toothbrushes. Families joined in too, helping to assemble the bags.
- In Irvine, we went to the Orange County Food Bank for the third year, thanks to Mark Hogan’s wife, Mary, who is an active volunteer at the charity.
- In Los Angeles, Marsel Watts supported one of our borrowers, Nay’s Tacos, at a parade in honor of Dr. King. Marsel volunteered as Nay’s, a food truck, served up goodies for one of the parade participants, Blue Cross.
Multiple times a year FE Small Business Finance gives employees the chance to band together to complete projects that benefit local groups in need.
“ FE hires employees that value giving back to the communities we serve,” said Erin Hebert, executive vice president of administration and human resources. “Volunteering is a cherished part of our culture and we love working together as a group making a difference for others.”
