Friendship Industries is a business with a social mission to develop and maintain employment and training opportunities for persons with disabilities in integrated work environments. Our employees work on commercial contracts with the Department of Defense, major retailers, and international companies; providing the packaging experience our customers expect. We also have job coaches supporting employees at other area businesses. In our efforts to positively impact employment for persons with disabilities, we look to community donors to assist with supporting our employment services. Currently we are focusing on two areas (1) employment scholarships (2) helping improve employee environments through our warehouse expansion.
In 2007, the Board of Friendship Industries, Inc. established the Friendship Industries Endowment Fund, a permanently endowed fund, with The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg & Rockingham County. The purpose of this fund is to support the ongoing operational costs of the organization. As you consider your year-end giving this holiday season, please consider making a gift to the Friendship Industries Endowment Fund and positively impact the individuals served by this local nonprofit organization.
