Charity, which is known as our “4th C.” Our Founder believed strongly in the principle, “Love your neighbor.” FTI strives to encourage and support our employees to develop and maintain a spirit of charity by volunteering their time, attention, efforts, and resources to any of a wide range of charitable or community outreach activities. We want to take the time to share with you one of the great charitable things that are going on this month at FTI. March is Women’s History Month. We have a very special activity going on this month to honor this theme and provide support for our active servicewomen.

Here at FTI we are excited to honor Women’s History Month which originated as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed legislation recognizing Women nationwide. Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.

In honor of Women’s Month, the 4th C  (click here to learn more about the 4th C) will be partnering with Troopster to send care packs to deployed servicewomen overseas our “Sheroes”. Our goal is to help them send 5,000 care packs. Each pack costs around $15 plus shipping. Help us reach our goal in two ways:


1.  Give directly to Troopster using this link and the 4th C will match every $15 donation for a box with a matching donation and cover the shipping.

2.  Purchase a gift basket for Mother’s Day delivery through Arena Farms ( obsessed with organic luxury by ArenaFarms on Etsy )  and mention FTI in your note at checkout.  Arena Farms is run by Charlie Arena, who is a young female African American entrepreneur who has created these amazing gift baskets and has agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds to Troopster.  You can also make a donation of product to Shero through Arena Farms.  This is a great opportunity to recognize and honor those special women in your own life while supporting a great cause and a young female entrepreneur.
