What’s GROWing on in September

The month of September serves as a yearly spotlight for our GROW Fund (Giving Resources and Opportunities to Workers). During GROW Month, we highlight our year-round efforts made to improve social programs in Mexico and Ecuador.

Since 2005, the GROW Fund has granted over $500,000 in support of social programs in Mexico and Ecuador, providing a hand up to workers and their families in the areas where Organics Unlimited bananas are grown.

In support of the 2009/2010 school year, GROW is funding education programs, community development, and health services including 9 university student scholarships, 19 junior high and high school students including a homework club, College Endowment Fund, Casa Amiga university housing program, GROW Education Center, Vision Clinic, Preventative dental health services, Community Education promotions, and micro-business training and support for Ecuadorian students.

During GROW month, we will be participating in local events and community outreach. Keep an eye out, and be sure to stay connected by following us on Twitter, Facebook and our blog!
