Our Giving Back Mission: Part of our mission as a small business is to give back to our local and national communities, because of the trust placed in our products and services. Not only are sales a driving force behind our giving back, but it is also the right thing to do to help those in need. We believe our products help researches in finding solutions for the health and well-being of all families worldwide. In addition, we desire to go the extra mile in helping families financially through contributions to organizations structured to provide assistance as outlined in our Giving Back Areas.
Our Giving Back Areas:
- Organizations that help those who need a second chance and are rehabilitated from drugs, alcohol, or abusive situations and skill trained to live a fulfilled life on their own.
- Organizations that add back to communities by funding children‘s back-to-school education funds, community development, and higher education scholarships.
- Organizations that support families of fallen law enforcement officers and military families whose loved ones do not return home or return home wounded from deployment.
