I can honestly say that Fox Families Care is a selfless organization that has the best interest of all of our students at heart.  The members are positive, proactive, and supportive.  I enjoy working with all of you and look forward to our continued partnership in the future.

Since early 2020, I have had the pleasure of working with Fox Families Care.  We have collaborated on several projects aimed at helping children in the Fox Chapel Area School District.  Fox Families Care and Backpack for Hunger both work with the guidance counselors from the schools in the Fox Chapel School District to identify children in need. 

 

In the Spring of 2020, from March through June, when schools were closed during the Covid 19 pandemic, Fox Families Care and Backpack for Hunger worked together with other local agencies to provide over 10,000 meals to children who were missing school breakfasts and lunches.  I found Fox Families Care to be a very dedicated group of generous, caring and conscientious volunteers.  Backpack for Hunger looks forward to continuing to work with Fox Families Care to support the children in our community.

Fox Families Care is making a real difference in our community.   When Covid-19 hit, they came out religiously for months every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to help to feed our neighbors.  I had a "Dream Team" of Fox Families Care volunteers every Tuesday that drove a caravan of pick up trucks to Butler to haul literally tons of groceries back to Sharpsburg to be packed and delivered the following day.  These ladies were incredible to work with and so willing to help, no matter how hard the work.  

 

Fox Families Care was also an invaluable collaborative partner in the Dinners For Friends program that fed thousands of our community members while also supporting local restaurants.  We raised over $25,000, and Fox Families Care contributed significantly to extend that program into the summer.  I've been blessed to get to know these incredible women and see firsthand how hard they each work to benefit our community and make it a more equitable place.  Second Harvest is proud to be a partner of Fox Families Care!

My experience with Fox Family Cares has been amazing. The students of DMS and the community at large have benefited in so many ways from their active and eager engagement with the school. They have been both approachable and extremely responsive to the needs of our students.  An invaluable resource for our district!

I can’t express how very appreciative and in awe we are of the way that Fox Families Care has risen up to support the Fox Chapel Area school community. Not only does Fox Families Care provide our neediest students and families with essential edclothing, food, educational supplies, and other personal items, but the organization also provides a true spirit of caring and community. Also, thank you to your group for taking the initiative to make it effortless to collaborate with you. We’re grateful to be your partners, and we are so fortunate to have Fox Families Care to help us bridge the gap between needs and resources of students within our school district.

I can’t thank Fox Families Care enough for helping local families in need. When there was a need for a bed for a local student, it was provided as well as new bedding. When a senior was unable to get any pictures taken, they provided. During Covid they went above and beyond to help organize and provide dinners to local families. Truly an amazing organization with lots of heart to truly care for the wonderful students and families in our area.
