One of the major mandates of Oscar Francois Limited (OFL) is to enhance the quality of life of our consumers as articulated in our mission. In order to put this principle into practice, we actively partner with team members, local communities and NGO’s to reach out to the less fortunate.
Team Members who are actively involved in community groups and Parent Teacher Associations (PTA) are supported with donations, as in one case, the donation of a computer to their Library. Each year school supplies are provided to our team members’ children and our neighborhood schools have also benefitted through the receipt of graduation gowns sponsored by OFL. Food hampers and toys are collected each Christmas from team members and distributed to children’s homes and needy families. Some of our Team Leaders share their management expertise on a voluntary basis and the following have benefitted:
- * Family Planning Association
- * National Aids Coordinating Committee
- * National Mental Health Committee
- * Drug Advisory Committee
- * Secondary School Boards
- * National Libraries
OFL supports charitable causes through financial donations and the distribution of hampers and participates in fundraisers such as:
- * Scotia Women against Breast Cancer walk
- * Restoration of Churches
- * Restoration of Historical Sites
- * Church Fund raisers
OFL also has a Mobility Programme, where wheel chairs are donated quarterly to those afflicted with paralysis from injury or illness. Our goal is to reach and help as many people as possible who suffer from mobility issues due to not having access to a wheelchair. For example Blind Welfare Port of Spain, Simeanna Home for the Elderly – St. James, Datta Home – Valencia, plus several other deserving homes/persons in areas such as Cedros, San Fernando, Arouca, East Dry River and Arima.
In order to build lasting relationships with our NGO’s by supporting Youth Groups, Children Projects and Societal Homes, hampers and/or cash donations are provided for their:
- * Sports & Family Day
- * Tournaments
- * Christmas/Carnival Events
- * Raffles
- * Health expenses by purchasing fundraiser tickets
Oscar Francois Limited is determined to help create a higher quality of life for their customers, stakeholders and team members as well as assist in the development of communities.
