Community Outreach

New Hope bus

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 & 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 programs 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.

Charter Schools
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 
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 Take Stock in Children, which provides college scholarships and mentoring for our youth.

Palm Beach Zoo
Wildlife is a vitally important part of our eco-system.  Florida Crystals supports wildlife conservation through the Palm Beach Zoo. The Palm Beach Zoo's Species Survival Plan programs strive to manage chosen species and therefore help maintain a healthy, diverse population that may become self-sustaining in the future. To find out more about what you can do to support wildlife conservation, click here.

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.

Lake Okeechobee Regional Economic Alliance (LORE)
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.

Palm Beach County Literacy Coalition
The Palm Beach County Literacy Coalition is a non-profit organization of literacy providers, media, businesses and concerned citizens. The Coalition works with other organizations in its continuing efforts to open new worlds to adults and children with literacy needs in our community.
