Florida Crystals - Community Outreach
It starts with the products we make and extends to the communities where we work and live. Through annual contributions and personal time commitments of executives and employees, Florida Crystals is striving to make the world a little sweeter.
New Hope Charities and Mission International Rescue
The Fanjul family founded and Florida Crystals provides on-going support to New Hope Charities, a grassroots, not-for-profit community organization serving families in western Palm Beach County. New Hope provides much needed services, from daycare and after school to health care and feeding programs. For the communities in the Dominican Republic, Mission International Rescue (Fundación MIR) provides health clinics, schools, vocational training and an orphanage.
The Fanjul family also founded two charter schools, Everglades Preparatory Academy and Glades Academy, to provide educational choices for families in western Palm Beach County.
Take Stock in Children and Step Up for Students.
At Florida Crystals, we believe education is the cornerstone for success and that every child has the right to an education. Because of this, we are actively engaged in programs such as Take Stock in Children and Step Up for Students that promote education and mentoring initiatives.
Volunteer USA Foundation: "Love to Learn."
"Love to Learn" is a program dedicated to teaching parents the tools and techniques needed to support and reinforce their children's literacy at home.
Do The Write Thing.
Florida Crystals partnered with The National Campaign to Stop Violence to bring the national "Do The Write Thing" program to Palm Beach County, Florida. "Do the Write Thing" offers middle school students an opportunity to examine the impact of youth violence on their lives. Through classroom discussions and writings, students communicate what they think can be done to reduce student violence. In addition, they make personal commitments to reduce violence.

Florida Crystals provides financial and volunteer support to the nonprofit group, whose mission is to promote the economic growth and stability of the tri-cities in western Palm Beach County.
