What’s turning into an annual Christmas tradition, Fabtex donated dozens of gifts to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program for underprivileged kids 12 and under. We believe every child deserves to feel the joy of Christmas, that’s why both the Pennsylvania and California offices pitched it to sponsor children so they have something to open up on Christmas morning.

Fabtex also supported Families Forward, an organization that helps families in need to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency through housing, food, counseling, and other support services. This year Fabtex fulfilled gifts from the ‘wish lists’ of at-risk teens.
