The Backpack Program was designed to meet the food needs of school aged children when other resources are not available. Backpacks are filled with foods that are child-friendly, non-perishable, easily consumed and vitamin fortified. They are discreetly distributed by the school twice a month.
Denim with a Cause was created to raise money and awareness for local charities and non-profit organizations. Every Friday, for a donation of $5 FAB employees may wear Denim with a cause. The bank is located at 2424 Monetary Blvd., Suite 107.
