Flores & Associates is pleased to announce the launching of its first 501(c)(3) non-profit venture, HandsNFeet Foundation. HandsNFeet Foundation has a simple mission of providing outerwear accessories, with a focus on gloves and socks, to the Greater Charlotte homeless community through partnerships with local area charities including A Child’s Place and Crisis Assistance Ministry.

HandsNFeet foundation was the brainchild of the Senior Management team at Flores & Associates in response to the touching story of how one employee opened his heart to those in need by personally distributing warm gloves and socks to members of the homeless community he encountered on his daily commute. With the help of Mario Flores and the employees of Flores & Associates, that single act of kindness has grown into the establishment of HandsNFeet Foundation, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.

HandsNFeet has a 2011 end of year goal for the employees of Flores & Associates to provide 500 pairs of socks and 500 pairs of gloves to the local homeless community this holiday season. The foundation will raise money and receive donations throughout the year. Knowing that socks are always an important need for the homeless, HandsNFeet will distribute those items year round and make a large push for warm items such as gloves, hats and scarves during the winter months when the need for these items will be critical in the homeless community. If your organization is interested in supporting the foundation through a monetary or in kind donation, please contact Clay Peddycord at info(at)handsnfeetfoundation(dot)org or call 704.816.2497. All donations are tax deductible. To learn more about HandsNFeet Foundation or to get involved, please visit http://www.handsnfeetfoundation.org.
