FMI Makes Donation to Allentown Rescue Mission

FMI shares its success with the community. Takes donation suggestions from employees.

Allentown, PA • January 15, 2019

FMI, a privately held company focused on full service contract manufacturing makes a donation to The Allentown Rescue Mission. Near the end of every year, the employees of FMI are asked to nominate charities which have personally impacted them. This charity was near and dear to the hearts of several employees — an uncle of one who turned his life around after years of intermittent homelessness due to alcoholism; a friend and fellow churchgoer who successfully overcame drug addiction; and another who strongly believes in the way in which this charity helps disadvantaged men with economic, educational, and spiritual support. CEO, Kevin Rhodes, and his wife and VP of Sales & Marketing, Sheryl Rhodes, chose to donate to this local charity based on the impact it had on some of the employees. “The detailed stories submitted by our employees explaining how this charity helped others were quite compelling”, Kevin Rhodes declared.

About The Allentown Rescue Mission:

For more than a century, the Allentown Rescue Mission has addressed the changing face of homelessness, tackling the root causes of homelessness, and helping to end homelessness one life at a time throughout the Lehigh Valley. Thousands have come to us and received life-changing help throughout the decades.

The Mission continues to reinvent itself to address the increasingly complex root causes and issues of homelessness. Many of our clients experience dual-diagnosis; they have both a chemical addiction and some form of mental illness. Staff is educated and experienced, professional and compassionate. For more than 100 years, the Mission has been a place where men have begun to experience restoration with God, their families, and their communities.
