Brooks Resources gives $10,000 to Family Access Network


The Family Access Network announced Tuesday it has received $10,000 from Brooks Resources in support of FAN services in schools and early childhood sites throughout our region.

These funds provide access to the crucial resources necessary for each student to have the opportunity to be in school and ready to learn, despite any obstacle. This contribution is essential to realizing FAN’s vision of “a community where children flourish and families thrive.”

“I am proud to be a part of both the Brooks Resources and FAN Foundation teams, working together to improve the lives of local kids and families,” said Valerie Yost, Brooks Resources Director of Marketing and Chair of the FAN Foundation Board of Directors.

Brooks Resources is dedicated to achieving the highest standard in community development.
