This week, Brooks Resources gifted local non-profit, Family Resource Center of Central Oregon with $10,000 to go towards their mission of supporting Central Oregon families through parenting education.
Brooks has been a long-time supporter of the Family Resource Center and is passionate about creating healthy communities for children and families. The organization, which was founded in 1988, focuses on providing parents in Deschutes County with child raising strategies that strengthen their children’s physical, mental and social development. This mission is realized through a variety of parenting classes offered to the community at no charge
Community support is an important component of the Brooks Resources corporate philosophy. The company donates a minimum of 3% of its pre-tax income to Central Oregon charitable endeavors each year, including social services, arts and culture and education and youth development.
Additionally, employees are encouraged to volunteer in the community including board positions, non-profit work and time spent in schools. Brooks also has an employee matching contribution program whereby cash contributions made by employees to non-profit organizations are matched dollar-for-dollar by the company up to $1,000 per year.
